The WIN BIG Raffle benefitting Interlakes Area United Way kicks off today. One lucky ticket holder could win a 2022 Case IH Farmall 35A Tractor.

Premier sponsor and longtime partner Lake County International donated the prize.  

Additional raffle sponsors include BankWest, Dakota State University, Dakotaland Federal Credit Union, East River Electric Power Cooperative, Farm Credit Services of America, First Bank & Trust, First Interstate Bank, First PREMIER Bank, FirstLine Funding Group, Heartland Consumers Power District, and KJAM Radio.

The tractor features a 35-horsepower diesel engine, 3-speed hydrostatic transmission, MFD front axle, 540 rpm PTO, 3-point hitch, rear remote valve, foldable ROPS, and Case IH L340A loader and bucket, and retails at more than 35-thousand dollars. 

Interlakes Area United Way will sell six-hundred tickets for one-hundred dollars each, with a fundraising goal of 60-thousand dollars.  Money raised is passed along to community service programs and non-profit agencies in Lake, Miner and Moody counties.

President Lori Gustaf said that it will be even easier to buy a raffle ticket this year.  She said they’ve created a QR code that will be on display throughout their service territory.  She said the code takes people directly to United Way’s website to purchase their tickets. 

Tickets are also available at Lake County International, One Stop, F&M Co-Op and other sponsor headquarters. Tickets will also be sold at each DownTown in MadTown event this summer.

The winner of the raffle will be drawn at the Dakota State University Ag Bowl on August 25th.
