Earlier this year, my spouse and I purchased a raffle ticket from one of the little town gentlemen who was selling them for his baseball team.
- They usually have a fundraiser sometime in the Spring and the two of us consistently try to support the team and buy tickets from them.
It’s nice because the other parents in our town consistently buy fundraising stuff from us whenever our adolescents sell something. Anyway, whenever the two of us purchased the raffle tickets the two of us never in a million years thought that the two of us would win the Heating & A/C plan that they were raffling off. The people I was with and I were thinking about having to put in a up-to-date heating plan in our apartment this fall anyway and so when the two of us found out that the two of us could buy a raffle ticket for a up-to-date one, the two of us thought that the two of us would just try our luck on winning it. Well, it turned out that the two of us certainly did end up winning, even though the two of us hardly ever win anything at all. When the heating and cooling contractor that was sponsoring the contest and the team called us up to tell us that the two of us had won the up-to-date heating and cooling system, you could have knocked myself and others over with a feather. I was shocked that the two of us had certainly won it! But I was also relieved that the two of us would have to pay out of pocket for a up-to-date gas furnace ourselves. It was a actually nice surprise and a sizable relief to us that the two of us had ended up winning a brand up-to-date heating plan before the Winter time started up again for the year.
