Soldotna man wins truck in Stay & Play Raffle

A Soldotna man is the top prize winner in the Kenai Peninsula Tourism Marketing Council’s Ram 1500 Stay & Play Raffle.

Winners were drawn Sept. 16 at a joint Kenai and Soldotna chambers of commerce luncheon. The top prize, a 2012 Ram 1500 truck from Stanley Chrysler, went to Mike Erstrom. Erstrom had bought two tickets just three days before at a Brown Bears Hockey game at the Soldotna Sports Complex. 

A 14-foot recreational kayak with Thule rack from Sportsman’s Warehouse was awarded to Jo A. Earls of Homer, who said she has been looking at buying a kayak for several years. 

“Stay & Play” packages in Seward, Soldotna, Kenai and Homer were won by Roberta Quinturell, Lisa Beranek, Rod Perterkin and Rick Abbot. Linda Swarner took home a certificate for free auto detailing for a year from Stanley Chrysler, and Douglas Sherwood rounded out the winnings with free oil changes for a year, also from Stanley Chrysler.
