Well, if you've been hoarding Willy Wonka bars from the Manatee Players' recent promotion of chocolate in hopes of finding that last Golden Ticket - eat no further.
The ticket was discovered by young Jordan Boezem, who will be sharing her prize winnings - which includes a candy gift basket, Mattison's Riverside gift certificates, Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center tickets and a free trip to Disney World - with her family.
What a sweet way to end 2008.
