Community Basket Winner
The 2013 Burlington’s Community Basket was worth over $19,000 in prizes and one lucky person got to take it home yesterday at Community Field.
Fort Madison resident Michael Rashid was the big winner. Unfortunately, he was not at the game yesterday so he didn’t receive the extra $1,000 for being in attendance. He was at the Burlington RecPlex watching his son play baseball. We did talk to him over the phone after he was told he won. Rashid said he was completely shocked because he doesn’t usually win raffles.
Over 25,000 Community Basket Tickets were sold this year. The majority of that money will go to over 30 different charities.
