At the six o’clock hour D’Ann Harper of Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® calls for the attention of all those gathered. The as yet unknown winner climbs the stairs among all the attendees who are registered to win, each hoping for the luck of the draw. Instructions are laid out explaining the game, with a crowd looking up towards the audience on the stairs. Each name called indicates those eliminated until just one person is left.

The raffle drum begins its spin and one-by-one names are called out to descend from the pool of REALTORS® thinking only of that $10,000 in winnings. Amid the elimination process, door prizes are given out chosen from the business cards deposited into the basket. Elida Martinez of Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® North Central Office brought her grandson to lend a tiny hand in selecting door prize winners (isn’t he adorable?!).

With overwhelming joy the winner Chuck Berry of Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® was announced and a momentous uproar of applause followed. Chuck who arrived earlier in the evening casually commented to the sign-in staff, “I never win anything“.

Well, Chuck you’ve won and we couldn’t be happier to share in your happiness. His reaction was captured in this video interview:
