On July 18, Edgartown resident Hillary Landers drew three names for a pair of tickets each for field box seats for a Red Sox vs. Yankees series at Fenway Park.
The three winners were Kate and Sam Sherman of Edgartown, Carol and Richard Walton of Oak Bluffs and Linda and Peter Leahy of Chilmark and Brookline.
The raffle was a fundraiser for Hillary who suffered a spinal cord injury in September 2006 and returned to her home after 15 months of hospitalization and rehabilitation. In the fundraiser, 145 contributors raised just under $30,000.
All of the proceeds will be used to pay for the costs of home care, medical expenses and therapy for Hillary through You’ve Got a Friend‚ a qualified 501(c)3 charity administered at no charge by attorney George Brush and the Martha’s Vineyard Savings Bank.
Hillary is enormously grateful for all of the financial, physical and spiritual support that the Island community has so graciously given her.
