Ramona man wins cash in ‘early bird’ drawing

Tickets to win home or cash still available

A Ramona man is one of eight participants in the 8th Annual Dream House Raffle benefiting Ronald McDonald House Charities® of San Diego to win a cash prize in the early bird drawing, which gives participants who purchased tickets early an extra chance at winning big.

Frank Santana of Ramona won $1,000. Hank Brodnick of San Diego won $15,000, Jo Merritt of San Marcos took home $10,000, and Suzette Cristobal-Williams of Carmel Valley received $5,000. Also winning $1,000 were Jeanette Tomlinson of Carmel Valley, Elizabeth Smiley of San Diego, Murray Ogman of Escondido, and Maureen Tremeasne of San Diego.

Each winner purchased a $150 ticket and is still eligible for the grand prize, a five-bedroom, five-bathroom home in San Diego County or $1.5 million cash.

The dream house sits on approximately two acres and boasts an infinity-edge pool, swim-up bar, outdoor kitchen, and views of North County. The 4,600-square-foot home or $1.5 million cash are still up for grabs. All it takes for a chance to win is a $150 ticket. Tickets are available until May 4 and may be purchased by calling 888-824-9939 or visiting www.sdraffle.com.

Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego will sell up to 37,000 tickets for this year’s Dream House Raffle and is offering incentives to purchase tickets early by awarding prizes, including cars and vacations. To be eligible for the third early bird drawing on April 18 — when $18,000 will be given away — purchase raffle tickets by April 6.

Proceeds from the 2012 Dream House Raffle will help support Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego, which provides a comforting home and supportive services — including food and lodging — to families with critically ill or injured children being treated at local hospitals.

Ticket purchasers must be at least 18 years old, have a U.S. residency, and meet other requirements. For a complete list of rules and prizes, visit www.sdraffle.com.
