A special fundraiser, in which prize drawing tickets were sold at $100 for two, to benefit Antioch’s An Elderly Wish Foundation (AEWF), resulted in raising $7,000 for the charity and giving away $2,000 to three lucky participants.

The “Fund A Wish Drawing” winners were chosen during a reception at Cypress Meadows Assisted Living in Antioch, last Thursday, October 1st . The AEWF Board Members, who sold the tickets this last month, joined about 75 guests at the reception, hoping to win the big prize. Those in attendance were treated to appetizers catered by Rita Caruso and her sister Charleen Early, and wine from Oakridge Winery, thanks to Denise Stanley.

The $1,000 was won by Amanda Stockford, the daughter of Board Member Julie St. Andre. The $750 was won by Executive Director Mary Chapman’s sister and brother-in-law, Susan and Mike Taylor, of Fair Oaks. The $250 prize was won by Jack Monroe, a former Board Member.

Many more senior wishes will be granted with the money raised from this event,” Chapman stated. “Thank you to everyone who supported our fundraiser.”
