Queenstown man wins big prize at Cash Bash
CENTREVILLE — The fifth annual Cash Bash, a fundraiser by the Goodwill Fire Company, was held Saturday, April 23, from noon to 6 p.m. at the Goodwill Firehouse with a large crowd on hand.
The top cash prize of $10,000 was won by Queenstown resident Auggie Argabright at 6 p.m. He said this was the third year he has bought tickets for the annual event and was fortunate enough to have won one of the $125 cash prizes on his first trip to the Cash Bash.
This is a major fundraiser for the volunteers as there are 145 separate cash prizes awarded during the afternoon. Ticket holders are
able to enjoy free food and beverages while numbers are called every 2 1/2 minutes.
Funds are always needed by volunteer fire companies and the next one for Goodwill will be their traditional chicken barbecue that is held each spring and fall. It is a carry-out affair and the chicken dinners will be available after 3 p.m. at the firehouse on Wednesday, May 25. Tickets will go on sale after the spring barbecue by the Centreville United Methodist Men, slated for April 27 at the church. Both organizations have been holding the events in the spring and fall for many years so that it has become much of a tradition in Centreville.
The Cash Bash top prize was awarded to the lucky winner by event chairman John Cvach, who is also the company assistant treasurer.
