2016 Current Ticket Sales 8/29/16
The 2015 Big Cheese Jackpot 50/50 winner was Carolyn Elliott and her husband Clarence of Decatur taking home a check for $1,250.00. Carolyn said she only purchased the one ticket and with her winnings intends to purchase a new chair as hers is in bad shape and will save the rest of it possibly for Christmas. A total of $2,500 tickets were sold in 2015.
This is underway again this year!
Every year we offer a 50/50 cash raffle leading up to the Festival and have the drawing on Monday at 5pm Monday, Labor Day at the close of the festival. The winning number will be posted shortly thereafter here on this page.
Tickets are available in shops downtown and around Arthur, at the Arthur IGA downtown and at the Visitors Center and the Main Cheese Tent during the festival.
Winner does not need to be present to win and must claim the prize by presenting the winning ticket stub within 30 day.
The lucky winner will split the Jackpot 50/50 with the Association of Commerce. The AofC will use its share of the Jackpot towards the 2016 Cheese Festival and other Association projects that benefit the Arthur area.
