Vermooten wins WDH&HF raffle for trip to the Masters
The winner of the Wentworth-Douglass Hospital & Health Foundation's Masters Sweepstakes is Simon Vermooten of Auxilio, Inc. He purchased the winning raffle ticket for a trip for 4 to the 2013 Masters Golf Tournament at Augusta National.
Simon said a trip to the Masters is on his bucket list. When he heard he had won the tickets he said, "You have to be kidding me! I never win anything more than a box of golf balls or a club I do not need."
Simon is an avid golfer and said, once he saw the list of prizes for the Masters Sweepstakes raffle and the limited amount of tickets available, there was no way he could skip the chance to win.
"In addition, the fact that the money raised helps one of our clients and their local community is a bonus," said Vermooten. "After the initial disbelief that I had actually won, there was a smile on my face that lasted for days."
Proceeds from the Masters Sweepstakes ($30,000) and the 2012 WDH Golf Classic netted $100,000 to support WDH’s new Women & Children’s Center.
