The 58th annual Rotary Club of Rockingham auction is over and the winner of the truck raffle is John Yates
Yates, of Rockingham, The truck, a red 2014 Toyota Tacoma pick-up truck, was the most anticipated prize at the auction. Rotarian Steve Morris said 450 of the available 500 tickets were sold.
Yates, who also is a Rotarian, purchased four tickets for the raffle.
“I had been given five to sell,” Yates said. “I sold one and ended up buying the other four.”
Yates was overjoyed about winning the truck, but he is still a little unsure about what to do with his prize.
“I’ve thought about trading it in,” Yates said. “I might get a car for my daughter since she is currently driving a hand-me-down, but I’m still not sure what I’ll do.”
