Three “Deal or No Deal” 2017 Winners Take Home the Prize

March 13th, 2017 –The annual St. Patrick’s Day-themed “Deal or No Deal” dinner and game show fundraiser for the New Rockford Community Foundation was held March 11 at the New Rockford Eagles Club. Three winners - Melinda Martin, Bill Collier, and Ed O’Connor - split the grand cash prize of $2000 three ways.

The Eagles Club served a buffet dinner of seasoned beef, chicken breasts, sides, and dessert. The Deal or No Deal game, a “reverse raffle” where losers are drawn out one by one, with $1300 in other prizes from local businesses given out along the way, ran from about 7 to 10 p.m. After each round, mini-games for cash prizes and audience challenges for free drinks kept the crowd entertained and playing along as eliminations slowly revealed the final players.

The final 25 players left in the game were offered equal shares of $2000 cash, or the opportunity to play on for the chance to win even more money at the risk of being sent home empty-handed. Proceeds from the event, along with generous business sponsorships from the community, generated a net deposit of $8000 for the community’s endowment fund. Planning for Deal or No Deal 2018 is already underway.
