A Sioux Falls woman won the Jeep at The Barrel House “Hungry Hearts” fundraiser this past weekend.
SuAnne Knutson, a single mom of four, bought her raffle ticket for $50 roughly an hour before the drawing. The Sioux Falls woman, in desperate need of a new vehicle, had her name called when it came time to give the car away. Knutson says she’s been in shock for a few days. She’s glad she showed up to support the event that raises thousands of dollars for school lunches.
“My kids had been on reduced lunches at one point after my divorce. I thought this was a good way to pay back for those reduced lunches that they had once received,” Knutson said.
The Barrel House is still counting all the donations from this weekend. We’ll bring you their final tally as soon as it’s available. The goal was to raise $100,000 to give to the Sioux Falls School District.
