Brittany Ensley, this year’s Grand Prize Winner of the 2015 Beach Get-Away Raffle! Brittany visited Myrtle Beach in March to use her 3-day prize. Brittany’s Grandmother, Tribal Court Employee, Jane Owle, purchased the winning ticket for her last summer.
“We had a fabulous time,” Brittany reported after her trip. “The view was AMAZING! We also got to see the mystery cat that you are not supposed to feed. Lol!”
This is the 4th year Mountain Mediation has held the Beach Raffle. “We were so pleased when Brittany’s ticket was drawn,” said Lorraine Williams. Executive Director of the nonprofit Mediation Center. “Jane has always been a wonderful person to work with in the Clerk’s Office at Tribal Court. I couldn’t wait to tell her she had one.”
Other raffle winners included John Riehl of Waynesville who won two hours of live music by a local ensemble known for their Sudanese Gamelan performances, and Attorney Rob Hensley of Franklin, winner of a $100 gift certificate to Frog’s Leap Restaurant in Waynesville.
