Winners of the Big LeVespa 

One hot Wednesday afternoon in July, Michael Blair and Vicki Johnson weren't really feeling lucky, but they bought a raffle ticket for BW's Vespa scooter raffle anyway.

The couple stopped by the BW booth--shared weekly with Mister Car Wash--at Alive After Five and spun the sweet little prize wheel. They won a small prize, but what she really wanted was to win was "that," Johnson told BW earlier this week.

"That" was the white Vespa scooter BW spent all summer selling raffle tickets for.

At BW's first-ever Big LeBoise on Aug. 28, Blair's raffle ticket was the winning ticket pulled from the pile of 269 entries.

Blair and Johnson, who stopped by BWHQ on Aug. 30 to claim their new wheels, said they were walking into the Western Idaho Fair on Saturday--Blair's 42nd birthday--when he got the call from BW Publisher Sally Freeman that he was the owner of a new scooter. Not a bad birthday present at all if you ask us.

Proceeds from the raffle benefit Boise Pride. Thanks to everyone who took the gamble and bought a ticket. Maybe you can look up Blair and catch a ride with him sometime.
