Ticket 1706883

And that winner taking home more than $695,000.

But when the fall festival was cancelled earlier in the year, the West Side Nut Club wasn’t sure if they’d be able to raise much money for this years half pot drawing.

“Well, to be honest with you, we didn’t have our captive audience like we do at the fall festival," said David Murphy, chairman for the 50/50 half pot. "We had no idea what we were going to do because of that factor.”

But after topping more than $1.3 dollars, the West Side Nut Club saw how much Evansville citizens care for their community.

“Never, never as a committee ever thought we’d get this high," said Murphy. "What we did find out is that the community itself came out in droves. One to participate to hopefully win this half pot, but also understand that if they didn’t, there money is going to good cause.”

The other $695,000 going towards charity organizations, local non-profits, and area high schools.

And with the festival being cancelled and booths not able to set up, Evansville residents knew it was even more important this time to support the half pot.

“Well, we bought a half pot ticket because the west side nut club is amazing," said Evansville resident Dana Gill. "They do a lot of stuff in the community, and we want to get rich.

"I’m glad the community still had the half pot, cause it still supported the community and the local businesses," said Evansville resident Susan Massick.

And even though the half pot drawing just concluded on Saturday night, the west side nut club is already looking forward to raising even more money in 2021

“Our goal is next year is hopefully to have a fall festival. Our goal is to have the booths back on franklin street, and just see where we go. We can never guarantee anything we can do, but our goal is each year make it better.”

We're still waiting on the actual cold front to get here. That should arrive around dawn, bringing mainly light rain. The front may also be responsible for perking up a couple bands of heavier rain and lightning east of Evansville for midday Saturday.
