The Bay Days fireworks fund committee awarded the first of two raffle prizes, a one-year membership in the Freedom Boat Club. The winner was longtime Bay Village resident Tom Dunn, who called himself “a sometimes boater, without a boat.” The winning ticket was drawn outside city hall on Memorial Day by 3-year-old Eliot Beal, who was in attendance with his mother, Claudia, and brother, Henry.

Raffle tickets are still available for the Cavaliers package, which includes a great pair of tickets to 10 games next season, plus a "swag bag" of Cavaliers goodies, like a T-shirt, notebook, water bottle and more. The package is valued at more than $800. The deadline to purchase tickets is July 4. All the details, plus a PayPal button for cash donations, can be found on the group's website,

All money raised from raffle ticket sales and donations go directly to help fund the annual Bay Days fireworks spectacular on July 4.
