April 5, 2008 – Afhgan Raffle raises $1,000 for Progeria Research Foundation!

Zach’s great aunt, Alma Rae Lakes, coordinated a fundraiser raffling a homemade afhgan that was made by one of her co-workers.  Alma and our family sold $1.00 raffle tickets for this beautiful afhgan.  The tickets sold like wild-fire and after Alma Rae sold some candy bars, the total amount raised for Progeria Research Foundation was $1,000!  Thank you for the special lady who donated the afhgan and thank you to everyone who bought raffle tickets.  Zach drew the winning ticket on April 5th and the winner was Dessie Switzer.  Congratulations!!  Pictured below are Zach with mom and Zach’s great aunt and uncle, Alma and Jimmy Lakes.
