Ways to stay anonymous:

1. Don't cash the ticket.  Instead, frame it with one of the numbers obscured, and hang it in your office. 
2. Give it to someone you can trust, like me to cash in.

If I was a parent, I'd be furious.  You mean I might not have a school to send my kids to tomorrow?
I would be furious too,  What a waste of ממון הקדש

Oy. They spent nearly $1000 on this?

I read the letter that they spent 2 dollars on one ticket to be shared.

"TicketS" "numberS"
If you focus on being a boss, you will never be a leader. Leaders lead people to growth and improvement.

That's wild. Just curious does this also happen to be a struggling institution?

"TicketS" "numberS"
NumberS does not connote multiple tickets being that even one ticket has numberS on it. Now the "their" before the "numbers" and "tickets" as u pointed out do imply a seperate ticket for each one.

They could have done that with one ticket total. 477*0=0

The lump sum is less than $2m per staff member, before taxes and beforethe mosad's "cut". I hope no one's retiring off that.
