PRINCETON – The Friends of 4-H and Extension who help to support outreach educational programs for the Extension Service and 4-H/Youth Development Programs in Bureau County has announced the winners of the cash raffle fundraiser. The drawing was held June 14 at the Becker Professional Suites Building in Princeton.

Dorothy Nelson, banking associate of Princeton Centrue Bank, drew the winning tickets. Four cash prizes were awarded, including $2,500 to Bub Genslinger, Malden; $1,000 to Grant Hardy, Princeton; $500 to Harold B. Steele, Princeton; and $250 to Patti Atherton, Walnut.

Greg Steele of the Friends of 4-H and Extension volunteer group thanked those who participated in the fundraiser.

“We greatly appreciate the support of all individuals and groups who purchased the tickets to help maintain our county-wide University of Illinois Extension and 4-H Program,” he said.

Steele encouraged all to plan to participate again next spring.

All proceeds from the event will be used to support the 4-H and Extension educational programs in Bureau County. The proceeds will be matched with state funds and used for local services and programming.
