Arnold Palmer’s name pulled for $973 Friday raffle at Latrobe Elks


SHARE THIS STORY

Arnold Palmer doesn't need any more money, but he could have added to the tally on Friday night in his hometown of Latrobe, Pa.

Palmer is a member of the Latrobe Elks, which has an 18-hole golf course on the property, and, each day, the club conducts a daily raffle drawing for a jackpot. Any of the over 800 members can come into the clubhouse bar and sign up for $1. Then, at 8:30 p.m. each night, three numbers are drawn from three separate containers and, combined, form the three-digit number of the winning member. If that person signed up that day, then they win the jackpot.

On Friday night, Palmer's number came up. However, the King didn't sign up that day -- he's not typically at the club -- so he didn't wind up winning the jackpot.
