    giveaway party! The new year is off to a great start after our first giveaway party of the year!

    We here at Great Lakes Radio teamed up with Swick Home Services and Superior Stoves and Fireplaces to give one lucky winner a brand new wood stove package. The wood stove package features the newest in wood burning technology, Regency’s triple burn system. After a great night, we congratulate Robbie Jo Fezatt on being the lucky winner of the wood stove package!

    The party got off to a great start when we welcomed all of our guests into the hall. A big thanks to Nancy and Joe for getting everyone in quickly and keeping the registration line moving.

    Heading on into the party

    Once we got everyone settled in, Walt Lindala and Adam Carpenter took the mics to be the emcees for the night. They started by thanking everyone for coming and introducing our sponsors for the evening. After the introductions, it was time for door prizes! The whole crew was working quickly handing out door prizes left and right as numbers were being called. Our sponsors provided some really great things including hats and gloves from Four Seasons, gift certificates from Tadych’s Econo Foods, and gold star packages from Swick Home Services.

    After handing out door prizes, we announced it was time for the best part… the food! Eric had the honor of releasing tables for dinner. Mama Russo’s wonderful staff was serving up a great meal of lasagna, cudighi bites, and homemade salads! While everyone was eating the tremendous food and chasing it with drinks presented by River Rock Lanes, we explained our game for the night.

    We played some toilet BOWL-ing for free bowling! We set up two toilets provided by Swick Home Services, and set a plunger on the top of each toilet. Each person that received an invite to the party got a chance to toss a roll of toilet paper into the bowl for a free game of bowling presented by River Rock Lanes. Then they also had a chance to toss a disc and if they got a ringer on the plunger, they won a free pizza!

    Just short!

    After toilet bowling finished up, it was time for the main event, the drawing of our finalists. With Luke N picking out numbers at random, he called out the six different ticket numbers. Each finalist came up to the front and made their choice of station envelope. Each envelope had a sheet with a major prize, but only one could take home the grand prize! The finalists opened their envelopes together while the room was full of anticipation.

    Robbie Jo Fezatt opened her envelope to see that she won the new wood stove package and she couldn’t believe it! The other finalists won prizes such as a truck bed tool box from Advance Auto Parts Marquette, gift baskets from Super One Foods, a certficate for a tire alignment and oil change from Pomp’s Tire, a car wash bucket from Auto Value of West Ishpeming, and a string trimmer from Four Seasons Small Engine.

    Thanks to our sponsors Swick Home Services, River Rock Lanes & Banquet Center, Hudson’s Classic Grill, Four Seasons Small Engine and Mama Russo’s.
