The Luck o'the Irish was with Felix and Sherry Nuxoll who won the year's grand prize of $10,000 at St. John Bosco Academy's annual Mystery Night fundraiser.  They are able to spend their winnings at any of our fine sponsors: Bud's Powersports, Cottonwood Foods, Les Schwab Tire Center - Grangeville, Lindsley's Furniture & Appliance, B&A Performance Auto, Intermountain Feed & Mercantile and Sonnen Meats.   Attendees to the November 6th event, held at the Greencreek Hall, enjoyed listening to harpist Keri Kelly as they got a drink at O'Sullivan's Pub, and enjoyed a great meal while watching a performance by Rince na Gra, an Irish dance troupe from Moscow.   Huge murals of the Irish countryside, and a giant bower of trees were enjoyed while the main event raffle was underway.  Many ladies attended dressed as Irish country gals, while kilts abounded among the men.  Many thanks to everyone who purchased a ticket or participated in the online and live auctions.  A special thanks to auctioneer Brian Funke and to Therese Schmidt and Shirley Stubbers who headed up the decorations.  Pictured is grand prize winner Sherry Nuxoll with event MC's Norm & Julie Sonnen and Michael & Courtney Rehder. A couple more photos from Mystery Night are at the bottom of this page. Click on the photo for a larger view.
