One hundred dollars turned into thousands of dollars for one South Georgia person Thursday night.

The Lee County Chamber of Commerce raffled off a tractor as part of it's annual fundraiser.

It's valued at $15,000.

People paid $100 to enter. It was a reverse raffle. So each time a name was chosen, that person was eliminated from the competition. 

"No doubt about it, without this fundraiser and the annual golf tournament, we couldn't exist, the Lee County Chamber. And we certainly appreciate all the sponsors and the supporters and the people who buy the tickets," says Executive Director Winston Oxford.

This is the fourth year the Lee County Chamber has held the raffle.
