Ishpeming, MI – October 1, 2015 – If you weren’t at Red Rock Lanes in Ishpeming tonight, you definitely missed the party of the year! We gave away an Ultimate Cave Giveaway, valued at $14,000, graciously donated by Jeff Creten’s Custom Cabinetry, Gwinn Furniture Outlet, E & E Furniture of Escanaba and Ball & Christy Furniture of Iron Mountain, to Mike Kutchie! Congratulations!
Masses of people were lined up inside and out in anticipation of friends, food and fun. Dennis and Dee Dee registered everybody in line with lightning speed, keeping smiles on everyone’s face. My favorite part was next: standing in line for some delicious Italian food. Mama Russo’s catered the event with mouthwatering mostaccioli, incredible cudighi bites and various homemade salads. Not only did they serve some scrumptious food, they did it with a smile and friendly attitude. Now that’s great service!
Normally, after eating such great food, I’d fall into a food coma, but there was no time for that because Walt Lindala launched into giving away several door prizes from our sponsors. BioLife gave away a $50 Visa Gift Card to Mike Kutchie, ServPro gave a carpet care kit to Kim Midthun and Synergy Fitness gave away two massages to Crystal Hackett and John Basolo. Following door prizes was bingo! Each bingo round winner became one of eight finalists for the big giveaway.
Up on stage, each finalist held an envelope with a prize inside. Anticipation was high as the finalists crossed their fingers hoping they held the grand prize in their hands. Mike Kutchie from Champion drew the U.P. Bargains envelope, making him the lucky grand prize winner! Though not everyone was a winner, the finalists all left with great prizes. Stefany Jecevicus from Gwinn won a 3-month membership to Synergy Fitness. Kim Midthun from Negaunee won a $100 gift certificate Wattsson & Wattsson Jewelers. Troy Frayer from Marquette won a LaFayette Collision Center medium vehicle wash, wax & interior shampoo certificate from UP Bargains. Kay Beaudry from Negaunee won an Auto Armor interior shampoo and exterior polish for a minivan or 4-door utility vehicle from U.P. Bargains. Brenton Fitzpatrick from Marquette won a “Guy’s Basket” from Super One Foods. Brian Jarvi from Ishpeming won a “Women’s Basket” from Super One Foods. Charles Eberhard won a Keystone Light hunter’s backpack and chair and other swag from Great Lakes Wine and Spirits.
