In addition, drawings were held for other prizes. Pamela Peters won the golf cart. Anyone who made a donation had their name put into a drawing for a chance to win two other prizes. The winner of a grill from the Sturgis Wal Mart store was Tom and Bethan Hamilton, while Bob and Diana Hile won a $100 gift cart from the Three Rivers Wal Mart store.
