On Monday, March 30, 2009, The Public Theatre's Board President, Kathy Gleason, had the pleasure of picking the winning tickets for their Third Annual Broadway Raffle.

The Grand Prize Winners of the Broadway Getaway for Two to New York City are Yvonne Wilkinson and Barbara Fowle from Gray. The Public Theatre will fly them to New York, where they'll stay in a mid-town hotel for two nights and attend performances of the Broadway smash hit Billy Elliot and the Tony Award Winning Jersey Boys.  Ms. Wilkinson and Ms. Fowle purchased their winning ticket as a last minute impulse.  When told that she was the Grand Prize Winner, Ms. Wilkinson could hardly wait to tell her friend that they had won.

Second place winner is Pat Phillips of Auburn. She will receive a gift certificate to Longhorn Restaurant in Auburn, generously provided by the restaurant. The third place winner, also from Auburn, is Melinda Harder who will receive four tickets to any play at The Public Theatre.

The committee for the event was chaired by TPT board member, Elaine Makas. Thank you to all who supported The Public Theatre by selling and purchasing tickets to the Broadway Raffle. The Broadway Raffle is one of the theatre’s most successful fund-raising events.
