It was a sold out event for the Tignish Sportsman Riders ATV Club Elimination Draw held at the Tignish Legion on April 28.
All 800 tickets were sold for the club’s annual fundraiser where ticket holders had the opportunity to win the first prize of a 2017 750 brute force Kawasaki ATV donated by Kawasaki Canada through Danny Christopher Sales and Services, second prize of a Echo Chainsaw donated by Gaudet’s Small Engine Repair, third prize of $500 Home Heat and Fuel donated by the Tignish Co-op Members Relations or the fourth prize of a Kitchen Aid Mixer donated by F.J. Sheas and Sons Ltd.
This year the draw raised $20,000 for the club with $70,000 being raised in the five years since the club has been organizing the event. The proceeds from the draw go towards maintenance of the clubhouse in DeBlois, groomer upgrades and trail maintenance. Club president Larry Waite would like to thank their sponsors, club members and anybody who bought a ticket for the draw.
The winner of the 2017 Kawasaki 750 Brute Force was Duane Arsenault.
