The Adopt-A-Soldier of Door and Kewaunee Counties raised much-needed funds to help send holiday care packages to local men and women currently serving in the armed forces. After six months and nearly 2000 sold tickets, close to $2000 was raised in the Summer of Support Kawasaki Mule UTV raffle. Director Nancy Hutchison who was on hand Saturday for the drawing at Jim Olson Ford in Sturgeon Bay shares the number of care packages that have been sent since starting the program in 2008.
The winner of the Kawasaki Mule 4 x4 UTV, Shaune Cook of Menominee Falls shares his surprise of winning and why he bought tickets to support the Adopt-A-Soldier program.
Cook will now make arrangements with Luxemburg Implement to bring his prize home. Skylar Schopf, who is serving in the Marines and currently stationed in California, was back in Door County for a week’s leave and did the honors of drawing from all the entries for the Kawasaki Mule UTV valued at over $9,500.
