Doors opened at 5:30 PM and the Penny Sale itself started at 6:30 PM and ended just after 9:45 PM. Thanks to the Newport Senior Center for providing refreshments and to Dan Cherry for emceeing the event.

We would like to give a special thanks to Osgood Construction Inc. for their donation of several large prizes again this year. Also, to the Boston Red Sox for their donation of a JBJ (Jackie Bradley Jr.) signed baseball, the Manchester Monarchs and the NH Fisher Cats.
Congratulations to everyone who won one or more of our prizes and to our two cash prize winners, Jen McAllster of Sunapee who was there and went home with $1,200.00 and Kim McDonald of Billerica, MA. who won the $500.00 (not $600.00) because she had to leave early ( I bet she stays later next year).
Thank you to all of our sponsors and volunteers for another successful Penny Sale. See you next May.
