Swanton Lions Club Announces “Shop Swanton” Raffle Winners
In appreciation for the wonderful support local businesses have given to the Swanton Lions Club over the years, the Lions chose to return the favor this year by purchasing gift cards/certificates from 16 different small businesses and raffling them off in the community. Joe Kahl, a founding member of the Club, presented the idea to the members as a way to help local businesses during the COVID-19 Pandemic. The businesses were comprised of restaurants, retail shops, and sports and entertainment venues.
The drawing was held on the evening of the Swanton Corn Festival during the concert and the winning tickets were drawn by the lead singer of that night’s featured band, “Stirred Not Shaken”. The winners were as follows:
First Prize: Mark Jones of Delta (Mail Pouch Saloon-$100, Younique Boutique-$100, White Pines Golf Club-$50, Benfield Wines-$50, CK Sweets-$50, Tano’s Pizza-$50, Doodle Bean Coffee-$50, Posh Pallet Boutique-$50)
Second Prize: Jennifer Salyers of Swanton (KO’s Chinese Restaurant-$100, Valleywood Golf Club-$50, Pisanello’s Pizza-$50, Swanton Sports Center-$50, Benfield Wines-$50)
Third Prize: Candy Smith of Toledo (Wings Station-$50, Sew Beyond Blessed-$50, Old El Camino-$50, Fessenden’s Hardware-$50)
The Swanton Lions Club would like to thank all who supported this raffle and, in turn, supported the Swanton business community. Their next Lions community event will be the annual “Halloween Hoopla” on Saturday, October 30, 2021 on Main Street in Downtown Swanton.
