      $15,000 win in 50/50 raffle

      The Bishop Baraga Association of Marquette made someone $15,350 richer. The winners were Tom and Marion Hornacek of Pinconning, Michigan.

      Saturday was the 50/50 raffle drawing. The association sold 614 tickets.

      The money from the raffle, along with two matching grants, totals $40,050, which will be used towards the construction of the new Bishop Baraga Chapel in Marquette.

      The original prize was a Corvette, but not enough tickets were sold, so a 50/50 raffle was held.

      The chapel is expected to be completed by October.
