Three weeks of “grueling” ticket selling has paid off. The 2015 Chief Joseph Days Court broke the latest record on pre-ticket sales by tallying up $69,706.00.

After everything was said and done, Queen Addie Kilgore earned a $5,533.35 commission check, followed by Princess Marli Tracy-Mallory earning $2,637.00 and Princess Jesse Ellen Woodhead $1,834.65.

Congratulations to all three ladies on a wonderful job done.

Selling tickets is one of three parts in the competition to become Chief Joseph Days Queen and counts for 25 percent of the total score in addition to horse back riding and public speaking.
