was a big one for 10 lucky winners in the American Women's Group fund-raising raffle. Kudos to first vice-president, Ann-Marie Vaz, for selling more than $500,000 worth of tickets! And, thanks to United States Ambassador Pamela Bridgwater who drew the tickets. She thanked everyone for donating prizes and their continued support of the organisation.

Here are some highlights of the occasion, held inside New Kingston's Courtleigh Auditorium. A big thanks to Sweet Belle for the delicious sweet treats they donated.
