Vacation Getaway

Everyone could use a vacation getaway, and Russell Medical Foundation is creating an opportunity for 15 lucky winners to be awarded one.

This fundraiser, which begins May 15, will raise money that helps fund medical education scholarships for local students.

Tickets will be sold for $50 each, and only 3,500 are available for purchase. As an added bonus, ticketholders could potentially win more than one time. After a ticket is drawn, it’s placed back in the pile to vie for another prize.

Drawings will take place once a day for 15 days in a row and begin on July 15. Kenny Dean will call each day’s winner on the air during The Front Porch (except weekends). Tammy Jackson will call winners on the weekends.

All 15 winning tickets also will go into a separate drawing for a $2,000 cash grand prize that will take place July 31. To purchase tickets, visit
