Interlakes Area United Way's WIN BIG contest kicked off on Saturday with raffle tickets available for a 2019 GEHL skid loader worth more than $37,000.

The annual event raises money for IAUW's general fund, which supports community service programs in the region.

Raffle tickets are $100 each and only 500 will be sold. The winner receives a 2019 GEHL R105 Skid Loader equipped with full cab enclosure, heating system and deluxe high back seat with seat belt and bar. It also features a 60-inch utility bucket with self leveling lift action, fenders and rear counter weight. As equipped, it retails for $37,638.

Lake County International and Manitou America have again teamed up as premier sponsors of the raffle.

"Lake County International and Manitou recognize the importance of United Way and its impact on our region," said IAUW President Lori Gustaf. "They are leading the charge to create positive change in our communities."

Additional raffle sponsors include First Bank & Trust, Heartland Consumers Power District, East River Electric Power Cooperative, Farm Credit Services of America, Great Western Bank, First National Bank and Wells Fargo.

"We're incredibly grateful for the support of our local businesses and leaders," Gustaf said. "Every year they step up to the challenge; we couldn't be successful without their help."

The WIN BIG raffle typically generates about one-third of IAUW's total funding annually and helps support vital nonprofit programs and agencies in Lake, Miner and Moody counties.

Tickets are available online at interlakesunitedway.org; at the raffle sponsors' places of business; and also at KJAM Radio, Dakota Ethanol, Classic Corner, Dakotaland Credit Union, East River Federal Credit Union, F&M Coop Oil or One Stop.

The winner will be drawn on Aug. 29 at halftime of the Dakota State University Ag Bowl.
