The Calumet Theatre held a grand raffle drawing and a Christmas spectacular Tuesday evening.
Before the concert began, $34,000 worth of cash prizes were given away. The theatre began selling the tickets in August, and those tickets were drawn from a giant fishbowl with a chance to win the top prize of $20,000. The first place prize winner of $20,000 was not in attendance, but the 6th place winner was.
"Well, my husband actually purchased the winning ticket, and I won two tickets for the 2012 season, and I'm really excited about that," said prize winner, Lorraine Watts.
After the drawing, the Lowe Family Christmas Spectacular got underway. During the show, the family played various instruments in what can be compared to a Vegas-style variety show. The nine member group also sang songs and got the crowd involved by walking into the audience and shaking hands.
