“People need to understand that we did what we said we were going to do. They need to understand that this is a legitimate raffle, that the prize was paid for by Gateway to a Cure.”
John Kress, attorney for Gateway to a Cure
The charity raffle was ballyhooed as one of the biggest in Kansas City history.
The grand prize: a Parkville mansion worth $1.3 million.
The raffle took two years and involved at least one delayed drawing date before a winner was announced."
