Kayak delivery to raffle winner

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Gainesville, Florida, December 23, 2017 — Suwannee Riverkeeper met Chris Newton of Holly Hill, Florida, half way to Daytona Beach to deliver the kayak he won in a WWALS raffle. Back in October at Suwannee Hulaween, Chris got one raffle ticket, and that was the winning ticket. When the Riverkeeper called him, he wanted to know if someone had found his keys. When he heard what he was getting, “No way!” he said. But we found a way to get him the Trio-11 kayak generously donated by Malibu Kayaks.

For me?

For me?, Palmettos

Yes, Chris Newton of Holly Hill, Florida, yours was the winning raffle ticket we drew December 10, 2017 at Georgia’s Stephen C. Foster State Park in the Okefenokee Swamp.

Chris didn’t answer when we called from the top of the Suwannee River.

When Suwannee Riverkeeper John S. Quarterman met Chris and his crew halfway to Daytona Beach, in Gainesville, Florida, to deliver the kayak, they were still recounting the second call when Chris did answer. Continue reading

WWALS board member and Outings Committee Chair Phil Hubbard said, “When I donated the kayak, I thought the raffle would go well, but not this well, with so many tickets and such a happy winner. It’s good to see it went to an active kayaker who will paddle in it.”

WWALS Member and kayak winner Jeffrey Hinson Patton remarked, “I started to drive my car, but then I got the truck because I thought, just in case I win.”

WWALS board member and Treasurer Gretchen Quarterman, a charter board member, remarked, “Best meeting ever!” She had already Continue reading
