AREA -- A Thayer woman, Carolyn Parker, and her daughter, Tammy Owens of Salem, Ark., last year sold 3,000 tickets for the Children's Miracle Network. The first place winning ticket is for a $1,000 shopping spree at Wal-Mart. Second place is a $500 shopping spree, and third place is a $250 shopping spree.
Parker said she and Owens are proud of the amounts of tickets they sold last year and are hoping to beat their record this year, but she said with the rising gas prices it is going to be hard.
She said anyone or any business interested in purchasing a ticket or tickets can call her at 417-264-3854.
The drawing for the winning ticket will be Dec. 11. All proceeds from the ticket sales will go to the Children's Miracle Network.
