Dulyud, a retired insurance company owner, built dollhouses for his daughters for the first time decades ago. These days, valued at hundreds of dollars, he donates his work to help raise money.

“I didn’t want to sell them. I belong to the legion, and I said I want to try the lottery, so we held three lotteries there,” Dulud said.
