Three party goers had the best time of anyone who attended Duncanville Chamber’s “Fly Me to the Moon” gala and auction recently. Top ticket winner Rick Eubank may have had the biggest grin, as the winner of the $2,500 Big Spender ticket prize.

Tracey Mayner won the second prize of $1,000. Chamber Second Vice Chair Jane Moore, of Farmers Insurance Agency, was delighted to claim her third place win of $500. The cash prizes were distributed by Chamber President and CEO Steve Martin.

A well-dressed crowd that included city officials and staff, school board officials and staff, chamber members, and a “who’s who” of Duncanville society enjoyed listening and dancing to the smooth sounds of Marc Toussant and his orchestra. The annual gala, held in the ballroom of the Hilton Garden Inn, was sponsored by Frost Bank and included dinner and an auction.

Raffle Prizes

Raffle prizes included beer for a year from Andrew’s Distributing; a Costco Cash Card for $250; and a Spa Package Basket from Session’s Hair & Nails. Also a romance package from the Hilton Garden Inn, Dry Clean Super Center’s cleaning for a year, and Duncanville Community Theatre tickets. Edible prizes were donated by Chubby’s, City View Tacos, Little Caesar’s, and Roma’s. Best Western Plus and Golf Club of Dallas donated raffle prizes, as well as Gold-N-Things. spend
