ATV RAFFLE TO BENEFIT
ENDING HUNGER
IN
MAINE AN
OVERWHELMING SUCCESS

Pictured in the photo from left to right are Mindy Nyman, Sebasticook Valley Federal Credit Union Marketing Manager, Winner, Angela Baker along with her two boys, Jacob and Gavin, and Matt Huff, representing Huff Power Sports—provider of the ATV.

Since March the crew at the Sebasticook Valley Federal Credit Union (SVFCU) has been diligently selling tickets for a chance to win a 2015 CAN-AM Outlander Max ATV. On Saturday, June 20th, the winning ticket was drawn—Angela Baker from Pittsfield was the big winner. She and her two boys were so excited. The other big winner was the Ending Hunger in Maine Campaign—through this raffle they were able to raise over $4,000 for the campaign. We would like to recognize everyone that bought raffle tickets and made this campaign a success.
