Thanks to all of you!

Our raffle raised $4615 ( 1110 sold) - We donated $5077 to the three charities!
(48 more  have been added (oops!), all from the mail  - some unexpected, some buying more than expected)

A few people have  mailed in to purchase chances, without letting me know.  We accepted the money, and include them in the raffle - it is all still for a good cause.

1110 tickets were sold (our target was 1000 tickets or 6 weeks, but the sales went so quickly that we overshot - I'm hoping no one will mind too much):

23  purchases of a single chance for $5 --- $115.

180  purchases of 6 chances for $25 --- $4500

PayPal fees are about $250.00
( I will make up that amount so that all of the money coming in will go out to cancer societies)

(Note - as I learned about the sale, I assigned a number, and have not changed it. In some cases numbers are not in sequence (mail) when I expected one ticket and found $25 for 6.   Where the date is not in order, the payment arrived via mail)
