It's been a very good year for one of the biggest fundraisers for the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race. Iditarod officials say ticket sales started off sluggish for the 2010 Iditarod Winter Raffle but ended well -- selling out on Saturday afternoon.
Twenty winners were to be announced Sunday at the Great Alaska Sportsman Show in Anchorage. Four of the winners will win a brand new Dodge Ram pickup truck worth more than $42,000.
The purse for this year's Iditarod was significantly less than last year's. Race officials blamed the smaller purse on a struggling economy that forced some sponsors to pull their support for the race.
