SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - The United Boys and Girls Clubs of Santa Barbara County held its fundraiser to raffle off a beautifully restored 1956 GMC pickup truck valued at $60,000. Tickets were $150 each.
However, ticket sales failed to reach at least 600 so organizers changed the raffle to a 50-50 drawing with the winner receiving half of the money raised. Officials said they sold 306 tickets for a total of $45,900. The winner is Susan Berry, who lives in Ventura. She will receive $22,950 in prize money.
Money raised will go to scholarships for Santa Barbara County youth to attend full day Community Learning Centers at four Santa Barbara County locations.
The United Boys and Girls Club organizers had one of its members draw the winning ticket on Facebook Live at 6pm.
We'll have more on the winner tonight on NewsChannel 3.
