The night was capped with the drawing for a brand new Corvette or $40,000 cash. The grand prize was won by an Alabama man - the state of Alabama.
The Batavia Rotary Club sells the tickets across the country. It is the club's main fundraiser of the year to support its local youth programs.
The first in what will be a series of Coffee Talks about Batavia’s neighborhoods was held this weekend.

"Well, I'm concerned about mny community and I have some issues with people who live near me. I think it would be nice to know more of my neighbors and hopefully we can solve some of the issues we have."
The next Coffee Talk is this coming Saturday, October 5th at Williams Park.
