Chandler resident Paul Haus from Chandler won an Audi A5 Cabriolet plus $14,000 cash in the Fall 2010 Health and Wealth Raffle, which benefits St. Joseph’s Hospital Medical Center and Barrow Neurological Institute. A resident from Apache Junction won one of two grand prizes: His & Her Mercedes plus $37,000 or a cash option of $150,000. The winner wished to remain anonymous.
Haus said his wife thought he was playing a prank when he called to tell her the news: “When I called her, I told her to leave the room at her friend’s house in a sad tone of voice and to find a place to sit down because there was something we really needed to talk about,” said Haus. “Then I surprised her with the news. I think my prank worked too well. She wouldn’t believe me until the car dealership called.”
