Mary Toth Is Winner Of SSSA Maui Raffle SADDLEBROOKE, AZ – April 12, 2004 - Hawaii is calling Mary and Terry Toth. The SaddleBrooke couple from Elkhart, Indiana, each bought a ticket for the Maui Vacation Raffle sponsored by the SaddleBrooke Senior Softball Association (SSSA), and Mary's number was drawn as the winner. The Toths plan to fly to Maui, Hawaii's Valley Isle, in late September for a week's vacation. In addition to the stay at a condominium in the popular Kaanapali Beach area on the island's west shore, the couple received $2,000 in cash for airfare, ground transportation and incidental expenses. Use of the condominium was donated for the SSSA raffle by Bob and Sue Manthey. Manthey has been playing on the championship SaddleBrooke 65 team for the past four years. The team competes in the Pima County Softball League. "Neither Terry nor I has been to Hawaii so we are really looking forward to this trip,” states Mary. "We each bought a raffle ticket from Paul Harrison, one of our neighbors. I was so thrilled when the softball association notified me that I was the winner." The drawing was held March 31. In addition to the Maui trip as first prize, Al Cangeme won second prize of $300 and John Merlin held the winning ticket for third prize in the amount $150. Both are SaddleBrooke residents and play on teams in SSSA softball leagues. "We are extremely gratified that SaddleBrooke residents won all the prizes in our first raffle," says Gene Bovee, president of the SaddleBrooke Senior Softball Association. Proceeds from the project will be used to meet expenses of the association. "Many people don't realize that softball is generally self-sustaining at SaddleBrooke," Bovee adds. "We must pay our own way and that means generating the funds required for equipment, uniforms, maintenance, utilities and stadium upgrades, such as dugouts and bleachers." In addition to fund raising projects, businesses, individuals and organizations have provided financial assistance by sponsoring teams and buying advertising space. The Toths were married four years ago at the SaddleBrooke Clubhouse. Terry is a retired railroad engineer, while Mary served as public relations director of the Elkhart Chamber of Commerce in Indiana. She now is employed as administrative assistant to the chief nursing officer at the newly-opened Northwest Medical Center in Oro Valley. The couple also operates a business that customizes golf cars. Sandy Strack, whose late husband, Bill, played softball on the SaddleBrooke Blues team in the Pima County League, drew the winning tickets. John Vosper and Pat Polencheck coordinated the raffle for the SSSA. The Mantheys rent two condominiums in Maui on a continuous basis throughout the year. For information about availability of the units contact Bob Manthey at 1-800-866-1485. Complete descriptions of the properties are available at the Manthey's website, www.mauivacationcondo.com.
