The Milbank Area Chamber of Commerce presented four lucky winners $500 each in Ol’Mill Bucks today. The giveaway is part of the annual cash drawings held by the Chamber. The snow storm last Saturday prevented the drawing so the two winners were added to today’s drawing.
The first winner was Barbara Smith of Big Stone City. She was in Berens when her named was called. The second to be announced was Marty Buttke of Milbank. He was in Runnings.
The third lucky winner of the day was Marlys Justice of Milbank. Marlys was in Berens. The last winner was Kathy Bethke of Big Stone City. She was in Lewis Drug when her name was called.
When asked how they would spend their winnings, each of the winners said they would buy groceries. In addition to groceries, Marty also said he would spend his on gas and hardware.
The contestants are pictured above with Amy VanLith, Milbank Area Chamber of Commerce board member.
There will be two more drawings: December 14 and 21 at 2:00. Two $500 winners will be announced each of those days.
