After buying a lot of food, we left and enjoyed it at our apartment in South Granville. At around 4:00 PM, my mom received a call from my dad telling us that my younger sister won int he raffle. She's the only one who entered. I asked my dad how he found out, and he said that one of his friends are in the event and called him right away.

My younger sister won a Fiesta Pinapple Ham.
