    Marquette, MI  –  September 28, 2017  –  About 340 people showed up to River Rock Lanes and Banquet Center tonight for the $7,000 Storage Building of Your Dreams Giveaway party. Congratulations to Dennis Sippola on being tonight’s big winner!

    Premium Pole Buildings and Storage Sheds joined us for this giveaway as our major prize sponsor. The Ishpeming based company will be building a semi-custom shed for David after he chooses his choice of a 10′ x 20′ or 12’x 16 Gambrel or Gable design. Dennis hopes to turn the shed into a shop when it’s built on his property by Mike and TJ at Premium!

    Kicking off the night we opened the banquet hall orders around 6:30pm with Nancy and Amy manning the welcome table. Working hard to get everyone through the line quickly, guests shuffled through to find a seat.

    Once settled in, our emcees for the night, Walt Lindala and Adam Carpenter took the mics. Thanking everyone for coming the guys introduced our sponsors for the evening and gave a run down of the plan for the night. With introductions out of the way, it was time to give away some free stuff! We pulled ticket after ticket to give away door prizes like Sunny.FM 101.9 Station of the Year Mugs and ball caps from Four Seasons Small Engine.

    Breaking for dinner, Ryan Ranguette released tables for a tasty meal from Mama Russo’s. Bringing their homemade salads, cudighi bites and lasagna, the staff served up a delicious meal. In between bites we handed out more cool gifts from our sponsors like Tadych’s Econo Foods Gift Cards and free games of bowling from River Rock Lanes.

    Coming to the end of our night, it was time to draw our finalist tickets. Mike Plourde joined Walt at the front to pull our finalist tickets. Cheers erupted from the crowd as our seven finalists had their ticket numbers called. Each person came up and selected their station envelope hoping they’d chosen the big one. Major Discount delivered the countdown with all of our finalists tearing open the envelopes at once.
