Tiffany Reeves of Imperial was all smiles Tuesday when she picked up a new 32-inch LCD television at the Imperial city offices.
She was the grand prize winner in a fundraising raffle for new playground equipment at two sites in town, near the new pool and in Campbell Park.
The drawings were held Monday during the grand opening and dedication of Imperial’s new swimming pool.
The grand prize TV was donated to the effort by Great Plains Communications, Inc.
There were nine other winners in the fundraiser, which brought in about $2,000 toward the matching fund requirements for the new, colorful equipment, said Economic Development Director Leslie Carlholm, who helped coordinate the fundraiser.
The matching funds were necessary as the city received a $10,000 Peter Kiewit Foundation grant last year.
Also contributing to the purchase of the new equipment at both sites was money from the city’s sales tax proceeds and park department budget dollars.
Here is the full list of winners in the fundraising raffle.
32” LCD television, Tiffany Reeves; CCS all sports pass, Dustin Weiss; $25 Chamber bucks, Matt Carlholm; $25 Chamber bucks, Christy Colson; $25 gift certificate—Northside, Linda Nelson; Family season swim pass, Christy Colson; Water aerobics pass, Jill Fiedler; Water aerobics pass, Nathan Vitosh; Single swimming pass, Terry Bilka; Night at the movies, Laura Gaschler.
