Derek Moore of Orange won the 2012 Laguna Beach Million Dollar Home Raffle. Dan Stetson, President of the Ocean Institute, the non-profit beneficiary of the raffle, pulled the winning ticket November 3. Moore was sitting among the crowd at the drawing, which was held at the Ocean Institute.
“I can’t believe I’ve won, I’m in a state of shock,” Moore said. Moore must now choose either the home or to take the $1 million in cash.
To date, the raffle has awarded over $9 million in prizes, making it the most successful home raffle in the state.
Planning is already underway for the 2013 raffle; to be placed on a mailing list, visit www.ocean-institute.org. A complete list of 2012 winners is also available on the site.
