Kay Burnett of Fresno was chosen as the 11th annual Granville Home of Hope winner Monday evening.

The prize home, located off Fowler Avenue between Shields and Clinton avenues, is “fully loaded” with tech features not seen in any current Granville homes, said spokeswoman Veronique Werz.

The organization raised $452,200 this year and all of the proceeds will go to 10 local organizations, including the Poverello House, Hinds Hospice, Community Food Bank and the foundations for Clovis and Sanger schools, Werz said.

The raffle started at 5 p.m. and included T-shirt giveaways, food and guest speakers.

Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer pulled the winning raffle ticket, and former Fresno Mayor Alan Autry also was in attendance.

The winner was not present, but was notified by phone during the event.

Ticket buyers had a 1-in-25 chance to win secondary prizes, including a trip to Yosemite and a Pier 39 family fun pack.

A two-year lease on a Lexus also was given away by Fresno Lexus.
