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.
