Humble and Kind, Participant “Surprised” He Won 5K

FAIRBURY – Irvin Schleufer was the lucky $5,000 winner of the Florida Keys or 5 G’s contest. Irvin was one of the many listeners who showed up to our remote locations, received a peel and reveal card, and became a qualifier.

The final drawing took place at the Fairbury Elk’s Club on Thursday night, where hopeful participants socialized and enjoyed smoked pork sandwiches from Totally Smoked BBQ. All the fun and of course, the big check, was sponsored by News Channel Nebraska 1450, Ol’ Red 99.5 and D&K Agri-Sales.

Irvin was humbled by his win saying “I was surprised! I was just kind of laid back, relaxed.”

He’s not quite sure what he’s going to do with $5,000 yet, but he says some family dinners and “maybe” a vacation could be money well spent.
