Woman wins $10,000 at raffle
A New Milford resident won $10,000 through a raffle at an event for Brookfield’s St. Joseph Catholic Academy.
Allison Howard, whose sibling attends the school, said she plans to use the money to help buy a home. She bought the raffle ticket at the school’s Spring Forward Celebration at The Foundry Kitchen and Tavern in Sandy Hook.
More than 80 parents and alumni attended the event to raise money for the school’s operating budget. This was the school’s first $10,000 raffle, with more than 650 tickets sold at $50 each.
