A crowded house at the West Bend Mutual Prairie Center on Thursday evening as the West Bend Sunrise Rotary held its annual fundraiser. This year the beneficiary, The Threshold Inc. received $10,000.
The night included a silent auction, bakery auction, and a constant stream of raffle winners.
The grand prize of $10,000 was won by a group of six couples including Mike and Mary Jo Otten, Paul and Barb Wilke, Mike and Tracy Nowak, Dan and Kristi Lawrence, Mike and Kay Chevalier and Adam and Michelle Schensema.
The representative for the group was Michelle Schensema of Schensema, Trier & Company.
Editor’s note: Behind the scenes the live drawing of winners names was delayed following technical difficulties, that’s after the door on the rotating bin accidentally flipped open and more than 100 small plastic canisters dropped out.
I was the name caller at the time and made excellent use of the opportunity by plugging your No. 1 community news source at WashingtonCountyInsider.com Local news, first-run stories, no subscription and no password needed!
