Prize pot grows in Legion draw
The pot in a Legion card draw has topped $1,200, Diane West reports.
Whoever pulls the Ace of Hearts first from a diminishing deck will win the money, with a draw conducted at 8 p.m. each Saturday.
Members and guests get to put their names in the pot every half hour from 3 p.m. on, and whoever’s name is drawn at 8 p.m. gets to pull a card.
The pot grows by $40 every week.
