A southeast Saskatchewan farm family is proud to have a new addition to the animals on their property.
The Veorba family won the Get your Goat fundraiser for the Broken Arrow Youth Ranch, a ministry near Wood Mountain. Former Estevan resident Todd Moroz is the director of ministry and outreach, while his wife Lara is the administrator and on-site teacher.
Tickets were sold for Get Your Goat, with the top prize being a goat named Billy Bob, and people could write their own name on the ticket, or the name of someone they know. In the case of the Verobas, somebody else wrote their name down.
The draw was held Sunday afternoon at 3:30 p.m., at the end of the Estevan Strippers Spring Bust hockey tournament, where the ranch had a team named the Broken Arrow Bruins.
The Verobas could have made a donation to the ranch if they didn’t want to own Billy Bob, but one of their children wanted a goat, so Billy Bob has a new home.
Members of the Veroba family are Raymond and his wife Amy, their sons Cody and Walker, and their daughter Reegan.
Lara noted that the Get your Goat fundraiser generated $1,500 this year.
