WISCONSIN RAPIDS – The United Way of Inner Wisconsin Prize Patrol was busy from Dec. 7-14, delivering five $1,000 cash prizes to unsuspecting winners.
To qualify, these winners needed to make a first-time $26+ gift to United Way of Inner Wisconsin; or increase their gifts by $26 over their 2016 donation.
This year’s winners were:
- Carl Hilke of WFHR/WLJY
- Elizabeth Ironside of Aspirus
- Dale Ninneman of Solarus
- Robert Schmid of WestRock
- Paul Siekert of Fey Printing
“We’d like to thank all the winners for supporting United Way,” said Tari Jahns, United Way of Inner Wisconsin CEO. “Some of the winners were first-time givers and some increased their donations. Whichever way they qualified, these winners are helping to make an impact in our communities. Of course the real winners are the 31 partner programs, six coalitions and eight initiatives we support. Thanks to everyone in the community – volunteering and making financial contributions – we can make our communities a great place to live.”
United Way of Inner Wisconsin thanks the sponsors of the 2017 $1,000 cash prizes: Aspirus, Heartland Farms, River Cities Bank and Timber Shores.
