Those present at the Dugout Steakhouse last Tuesday evening were enthusiastic and anxious to see whose name would be emerge as the weekly winner of $100 or perhaps even the winner with the ‘Ace of Diamonds” Jackpot. While the Ace was not drawn, the winner Kenny Thompson proved that perseverance pays off. Thompson won the weekly drawing for the second time in two months winning $100 - again.

Foundation President, Gary Yager noted that Thompson is not only lucky but a valued supporter of the Monroe City R-1 Foundation and the young people that will benefit from the funds raised to enhance existing programs and support new initiatives.

Tickets for the weekly drawing can be purchased at all Monroe City banks as well as at the Dugout. An effort is also being made to have tickets available at the July 4th festivities. Tickets can be purchased for $1 or 6 for $5.
