Talk about a bargain. A La Habra businessman who plunked down $300 for two raffle tickets won a million-dollar hilltop mansion with sweeping ocean views Tuesday -- all part of a fund-raising gambit by the Palos Verdes Art Center. Winner John Moungian, 54, wasn't present when raffle officials drew his name, but his sister, Gloria Brass, of Rancho Palos Verdes was. "John! John! You won the house!" she shouted into her cell phone.
