Chase the Ace, the Lake Preston Volunteer Fire Department's fundraiser, has resumed its weekly Chase the Ace raffle drawings. Garth Johnson of Arlington had the winning ticket Jan. 9, giving him a chance to draw a card from the 13 remaining in the deck. The ace of spades would have won the $53,541 jackpot. He picked the three of diamonds and took home $1,379, which was 10 percent of the night's take.
The game will be played each Saturday with an increasing jackpot and one less card in the deck each week until someone draws the ace of spades. Ticket sales begin at 6 p.m. at the New Horizon Lounge, The Other Bar and at a drive-up location just north of The Other Bar. The drawing is at 7:45 p.m.
