Dakota Rose takes home the big prize

         Friday, February 7 was a great day for the Manor Fire Department and two lucky winners of Manor’s “Chase the Ace” fundraiser, as this was the final evening for the jackpot to be won. The King George Tavern was filled to capacity and all ticket holders were hoping to have a chance to draw the “Ace of Spades”.

         $12,082 was up for grabs should the first name pulled out of the ticket drum pull the Ace of Spades.

         Shannon Knibbs, who was not in attendance, was the first name pulled. Her proxy drew the Five of Hearts, netting her $1,582. This left $10,500 for the eventual winner.

         After more than a dozen people had their chance of pulling the coveted Ace of Spades, Dakota Rose (not in attendance), had his name picked and his proxy drew the “Ace of Spades”.

         On an interesting note - Rose just happened to win the first night’s draw when the fundraiser began last fall. Congratulations Dakota.

                  Manor Fire department raised $10,500 through this fundraiser and will be purchasing equipment for the Department.
