MEDINA – Orleans Habitat for Humanity is announcing the winner of this year’s playhouse. Jason Miller of Lyndonville won the playhouse after buying a ticket as part of this year’s drawing.

The event raised about $1,600 for the local chapter of Habitat for Humanity. Miller’s name was drawn on Aug. 1, the final day of the Orleans County 4-H Fair.

Habitat also announced it received a check for $2,263 from the Valu Home Centers Company. This represents the amount collected by the local Valu store on Maple Ridge Road during the campaign sponsored by Valu to benefit Habitat for Humanity affiliates in the WNY area.

Customers in the Medina store purchased tickets for a chance to win a new Ford Focus. That money benefits the local Habitat for Humanity affiliate. The winner of the new car was a customer of a Bradford, PA store, but all the Habitat affiliates received proceeds because of the annual support provided by Valu Home Centers.
