Interlakes Area United Way (IAUW) concluded its annual WIN BIG Raffle during the DSU Ag Bowl in September. Madison resident Paula Kingery's name was drawn at halftime by members of the IAUW board.
Kingery will receive a 2020 GEHL R105 Skid Loader, retailed at more than $37,000. The loader was donated by longtime raffle sponsor and IAUW advocate Lake County International.
The WIN BIG Raffle is an annual fund-raiser that supports IAUW's general fund. Tickets sell for $100 each, and only 500 tickets are sold. For the second time and the second year in a row, raffle tickets sold out, garnering the organization $50,000.
Additional raffle sponsors included First Bank & Trust, BankWest, First Premier Bank, Dakotaland Federal Credit Union, Farm Credit Services of America, Dakota State University, Heartland Consumers Power District, East River Electric Power Cooperative and Great Western Bank.
