Jason Wille of Sheridan held the winning ticket for the Sheridan County Chamber of Commerce Weatherby Vanguard Deluxe rifle drawing. Wille’s ticket was pulled during the Chamber Lunch on June 13 at the Holiday Inn Sheridan.
First Federal Bank & Trust purchased the rifle from Rocky Mountain Discount Sports and donated it to the Chamber for the raffle. The proceeds, just over $4,000, will go towards offsetting the costs of several programs provided by the Chamber and its committees.
“We are so grateful to First Federal Bank & Trust for this generous gift and for all of the excitement this event has generated,” said Dixie Johnson, Chamber CEO. “The Chamber runs on a tight budget so having this unexpected income is tremendously beneficial to the work our committees do in the community. We also thank Rocky Mountain Discount Sports for working with First Federal to purchase the rifle and our Chamber Ambassadors for doing a phenomenal job at selling tickets.”
The idea for the raffle came from First Federal, and the event was kicked off at the bank’s Business After Hours in April.
“We were riding the wave of excitement about Weatherby joining our community and the raffle seemed like a fun way to welcome them and engage the public, plus, give back to our Chamber – who is such a strong supporter of local business,” stated Kevin Bailey, President & CEO of First Federal Bank & Trust. “We are very excited about the success of the event and would like to thank Rocky Mountain Discount Sports for facilitating the purchase and congratulate the raffle winner of the Weatherby rifle.”
About his prize, Wille said, “I am so excited to be the winner of the Weatherby Vanguard Deluxe Rifle! Thank you so much to First Federal Bank & Trust, Rocky Mountain Sports and the Chamber of Commerce for giving me the opportunity to support our community and come away with a brand-new hunting rifle!”
