Chase the Ace will come to an end this weekend in Mabou. There is just one card left in the deck, the elusive Ace of Spades. The winning ticket holder will take about 125-thousand dollars. The fund-raiser for Mabou Minor Hockey and the Mabou Athletic Center, began last February. One of the organizers of Chase the Ace, Simon Beaton, says it’s been a successful fund-raiser.
Beaton says it’s estimated the profit from Chase the Ace will be approximately 100-thousand to 150-thousand dollars. The money will be evenly split between the two organizations. The final draw of Chase the Ace will be Saturday night from 7 to 9 p.m.
