COVINGTON, La. -- One lucky woman is the owner of a $525,000 home in Covington.

It was the grand prize in the Raising the Roof for Charity raffle.

Tara Hunter of Slidell actually is the new owner, but she wasn't there when her name was called.

The nearly 200 hopefuls crowded into the four-bedroom, 3.5 bathroom house, but they all left disappointed.

The St. Tammany Homebuilders Association has raised more than four million dollars with the raffle for local charities since 1994.
