After 18 exciting weeks, the Ace of Spades has been found and over $7,000 has been raised for charity.

Sara Lauzon of the Northern Corridor Children’s Fund says the lucky winner Candice Gregory collected a jackpot total of just over $4,750.

Lauzon also says they raised over $3,700 for both the NCCF and the Kapuskasing Food Bank.

She says the involvement of the Kapuskasing community was no surprise.

Lauzon says they are now looking to re-start the progressive raffle lottery in just a few weeks’ time.

She also says they would like to extend a big thank you to the sponsors of the event; Circle Confectionary, CKGN, Namaste Studio, Spacek’s AVU, Rustic Bucket, Jackie’s Variety, and Guenette Funeral Home.
