THE WINNER of Friends 2014 Nationals Ticket Raffle is . . .


"I never win anything, but I will take two tickets. And, please keep the change as a donation to Friends," said Joe Wilson.

Joe Wilson, Director of the Loudoun County Department of Mental Health, Substance Abuse and Development Services, was chosen as the lucky raffle winner on August 11, 2014. Rusty Foster, President, Bow Tie Strategies, pulled the winning name from 242 entries. Wilson and three others will attend the Washington Nationals' home baseball game on August 17 against the Pittsburgh Pirates. They will experience the game from the suite level sky box with all of the amenities.

With 242 tickets sold, $4,100 is donated to Friends of Loudoun Mental Health to assist in providing rental subsidies, through the A Place to Call Home program. Stable, clean and safe housing is the cornerstone for a person to be able to work on their wellness issues and achieve recovery from mental illness.

Joe Wilson receiving the good news from Judy Hines, who sold him the winning ticket. Judy is on Friends' Board of Directors. The Washington Nationals baseball tickets were donated by Baker Tilly Virchow Krause, LLP.
