The winner of the raffle drawing for the log cabin for Franklin's Promise Toy Project was Gene Goff of Apalachicola. Sheriff Mike Mock is shown above drawing the winning ticket for the raffle, from a jar held by Beth Brinkley, chair of the project, and one of the owners of Resort Vacation Properties, whose staff helped with packing and distributing the toys.
Inmates at the Bay City Work Camp built the cabin, with Taylorís Building Supply splitting the cost of the materials with Franklin's Promise. The project, which raised close to $1,000, is funded through donations from individuals and businesses in Franklin County and other areas. Nicky Millender, director of county parks and recreation was helpful getting the log cabin delivered once we retrieved it from Carrabelle where it was being displayed.
