And the winner is …

Zach-Krivoruchka

Zach Krivoruchka is the proud winner of a brand-new pontoon courtesy of Moritz Sport and Marine, Brave the Shave, and Fishin’ for the Cure’s first-ever pontoon raffle.

Krivoruchka bought just one $25 raffle ticket when approached by his girlfriend’s dad, who was participating in the Fishin’ for the Cure tournament.

“My younger brother had a brain tumor so I always try to support causes like this,” he says.

When he got the call that he won, Krivoruchka says he didn’t believe it, thinking it was “a buddy just messing with me. After I hung up, I called the guy back and found out I really did win it. I was pretty excited.”

In all, the raffle brought in $18,482, which will be split between Brave the Shave and Fishin’ for the Cure, all of it going toward childhood cancer research.

“It’s really good to hear that the raffle raised so much money,” Krivoruchka says. “It’s a great cause that’s close to my heart.”

His advice for those considering supporting similar causes by buying raffle tickets? “Buy one. You never know what could happen. You just might get lucky!”
