CONCORD TOWNSHIP, Ohio - A lucky husband and wife from Parma are the winners of the annual YMCA Dream House raffle.
Out of more than 63,000 entries, only 20 keys were handed out in Lake County on Sunday. Only one unlocked the front door of the dream home.
It was Ron Herzberger's key that unlocked the 4-bedroom, 3.5-bath house, 2,800-square foot house.
Some 20 semi-finalists tried their keys in the door of the Concord Township home.
"I was numb inside. I couldn't believe it. I couldn't believe it when it turned!" said Herzberger about unlocking the dream.
Herzberger is a retired Cleveland Clinic worker. His wife, Linda, still works at the clinic where her co-workers knew about their chance to win the home.
"They're gonna have a hard time believing it too. I believe they were all wishing us well though, so good thoughts were there."
The semi-finalists took a tour of the home before trying each key. Ron liked the relaxation room, Linda fell in love with the kitchen and master bedroom.
But the Herzbergers aren't yet sure if they'll take the house, or take $200,000 instead.
If they choose the money, the house will go on the market.
Since 1993, proceeds from the Dream House Project have totaled more than $3.5 million. It goes to facility and equipment improvements for each branch of the Lake County YMCA.
