Congratulations Carolyn Huffman of Metcalfe County!

Carolyn has won a houseboat vacation on Lake Cumberland, valued up to $3,500 based on seasonal rates plus a $200 fuel allowance,  in The Center for Rural Development’s Houseboat Vacation Youth Programs Raffle.

She purchased the winning ticket from her grandson, 2019 Rogers Explorer Colton Huffman, who was selling tickets to support The Center’s youth leadership programs.

“When Colton sold me the ticket, I told him I would probably win, because I am not a water person,” Carolyn said after learning she had won a houseboat vacation on Lake Cumberland. “I have never been on a boat.”

Rogers Scholar Brooke Hopkins, assisted by Lonnie Lawson, President and CEO of The Center for Rural Development, drew the winning ticket on July 29 at The Center.

Proceeds from ticket sales will go to help support The Center’s Rogers Scholars, Rogers Explorers, and Entrepreneurial Leadership Institute (ELI) summer youth leadership programs.

The houseboat vacation package, courtesy of Conley Bottom Resort, is a maximum three-day vacation and must be redeemed by the end of 2019.

The value of the vacation prize will be subject to seasonal rates, and is considered taxable income to the winner, which will be reported to the U.S. Government and the winner on Form 1099. EXE0001356 has been assigned to The Center for Rural Development for this and other fundraising efforts. 

Rogers Scholars Colton Correll, Brooke Hopkins (holding the winning ticket), Caleb Honeycutt, and Chase Eastham came out to support the program at the houseboat vacation ticket drawing. Standing with them are President and CEO Lonnie Lawson and Amy Ellis, Executive Assistant to the President & CEO.
