An elderly resident at Clement Manor was the lucky winner of the $500 prize of the Greendale Historical Society’s Summer Raffle.
Delores Deremgowski, a mother and grandmother, was ecstatic to hear the news. The widow recently fell and broke her arm while grocery shopping. She says she will use the prize for her hospital bill.
Society members William Kewan, Kathleen Hart and Kevin Nitka presented Deremgowski with the prize at Clement Manor on Tuesday.
Deremgowski says she never passes up a raffle but this is the first time she won.
“I buy one everywhere I go even if it’s a dollar,” said Deremgowski.
The second prize winner of $250 was recent high school graduate Lauren Nitka who will be using her prize towards her schooling.
The cash prize was donated by society members Al and Virgina Emmons.
