Team Missions beef raffle winners

   Patrick and Marcie Eades and Gwen Gasaway bought the winning raffle tickets for Team Missionsí beef raffle fundraiser. The drawing took place April 1, and each of two winning tickets received half a beef.

   The naturally-fed, hormone-free beef was donated by Gwen and Steve Tuning. Larry and Carrie Squires of Battleridge Custom Cutting in Kooskia (who are helping Lathamís) cut and wrapped the beef, which Larry reportedly described as so large that each raffle winner would receive more the equivalent of a whole beef.

   Team Missions leaves Tuesday, April 20 for Nehemiah House orphanage in the Philippines, where they will assist in numerous service projects and Monique Judkins will provide dental care for the children. Joining Judkins are her husband Don, Gwen and Steve Tuning, Kathy Gadowa and Luke Manifold.
