The House of Flags Museum conducted its fundraising raffle drawing at 12 p.m. on June 14 at the Veterans Memorial Park in Columbus. A small crowd of onlookers observed the proceedings which were conducted by Paul Sutherland, vice chairman of the House of Flags Museums board of directors.

Reverend Ralph Kuether served as the official monitor for the drawing and Bobby Arledge, assistant fire chief of the Columbus Fire Department, drew the three winning raffle tickets.

Since the raffle had been converted earlier to a 50/50 type raffle, all the prizes awarded were cash prizes. Winning the first prize of $5,318.40 was Jerry Atkins of Tryon. The second prize of $166.20 was awarded to Ronnie Watts of Roebuck, S.C. and the third prize of $55.40 went to Charley Anthony of Landrum, S.C.
