Tisbury Business Association announces holiday raffle winners


The Tisbury Business Association (TBA) holiday raffle winners are May Johnson, who got her lucky ticket from the Toy Box and won the $500 grand prize; second place winner Linda LaBrie, who got her ticket at Brickman’s and won a $50 Rainy Day gift certificate; and third-place winner Leslie Mackinnon, who got her ticket at LeRoux at Home and won a $25 Brickman’s gift certificate.

The winners were notified after their tickets were drawn in a ceremony Monday afternoon at Rainy Day on Main Street. The shop’s owner, Heather Kochin, hosted the event with fellow TBA members Vasska Fondren of Brickman’s and Uta Kloss of Island Art Gallery. They enlisted the aid of a few shoppers to draw the winning tickets.

The TBA’s “Love your Local Holiday Raffle” was one of a month-long series of events designed to promote shopping in Vineyard Haven during the holiday season. Shoppers received raffle tickets with purchases or services from participating TBA member businesses. A further report and photo appear on page C3 this morning.
