Hayden Lake couple wins $200,000 grand prize house

A record crowd of more than 2,500 ticket holders and community members gathered for the North Idaho College Foundation's Really BIG Raffle drawing Wednesday night.

Though none of the top four winners were in the crowd, more than $250,000 in prizes was given away at the 12th annual event, including the $200,000 custom house built by students in NIC's carpentry program.

Winners were:

Grand prize $200,000 custom house—Gerald and Sharlene Wiedenhoff of Hayden Lake, Idaho with ticket #928.

First place $20,000 car or boat—Diana and James Raess of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho with ticket #1296.

Second place $3,500 travel package—C.B. Marcinkowski of Post Falls, Idaho with ticket #2676.

Third place $2,000 shopping spree—Nancy Noordam of Post Falls with ticket #3005.

Those who purchased tickets by May 31 also qualified to win two additional early bird prizes. The 32-inch color flat screen TV went to James Mason of Spokane, Wash., and the DVD/VHS player was won by Anna Foreman of Spokane, Wash.

In addition, ticket holders at the drawing had the chance to enter to win a $500 cash bonus prize, which was won by Sandra Jobes of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. Dozens of other attendees won various door prizes, including a $550 single-entry door with two vertical glass insets donated by Really BIG Raffle sponsor Stock Building Supply of Coeur d'Alene that was won by Norm Roloff of Cheney, Wash.

Ticket sales were increased to 4,500 from 4,000 this year and this is the 12th consecutive year the raffle has sold out.

This year's raffle was supervised and audited by the public accounting firm of McCall & Landwehr, CPA.

Through the Really BIG Raffle fundraiser the past 12 years, the NIC Foundation has generated net proceeds of more than $1.6 million. This revenue has enhanced the NIC Foundation's ability to provide support for NIC in critical need areas ranging from student scholarships, instructional and support services and construction projects.
