YWCA President & CEO Linda Baechle handed Ken Kobek a check for $25,000 on September 6th. Just hours before Ken's Building Brighter Tomorrows Scholarship Drawing ticket was pulled from a drum by Joe Barkman of Jurgoski & Fredlake CPAs. 

Ken receved a cash award instead of the original Grand Prize of a $50,000 college scholaship because fewer than 1,000 tickets were sold. 

The money raised by the drawing benefits the YWCA's programs for women and children.
