DANVILLE, Calif. (AP) - The timing couldn't have been much
better for Susan Wells to win a $2 million house in a raffle.
The news came just a few days after Wells' husband was laid off
from his job. Wells says she was floored by the good fortune.
The prize is a house in upscale Marin County, just north of San
Francisco. The couple already owns a home in Danville, a suburb
east of San Francisco. They can choose to stay in that house and
take $1.2 million in cash instead of the house. The Wells' are
still deciding which way to go.
The raffle was held by Community Action Marin, which netted
about $1.3 million, down from $2 million last year, the first time
the event was held.
