Door Prizes

During the course of the day, attendees were encouraged to register for the door prize drawings. Pride of Dakota T-shirts and a gift basket were given away during the social. Winners needed to be present to win.

During the door prize drawing, a standing room crowd gathered, surprisingly only two of the names pulled out of the box were not under the tent.

Sandy was the ecstatic winner of the grand prize, a Pride of Dakota gift basket full of amazing Pride of Dakota products.

Thanks to our Volunteers

This event didn't happen without amazing volunteers! Members of the Velva FFA and KMOT-TV staff spent the day making the event a success. They were hard working and helpful from start to finish!
