Ishpeming, MIOctober 2, 2015 – I had a blast at the Ultimate Cave Giveaway Party last night! The night was full of laughs, great food, and prizes at the Red Rock Lanes and Entertainment Center. Thanks to Jeff Creten’s Custom Cabinetry, Gwinn Furniture Outlet, E & E Furniture of Escanaba, Ball & Christy Furniture of Iron Mountain, and Great Lakes Radio, Mike Kutchie won the $14,000 Ultimate Cave Giveaway. Congratulations, Mike!

Yum! Mama Russo’s always cooks up the best Italian food!

By 6:30p, hundreds of people formed a line that ran out of the Red Rock Lanes and into the parking lot! Dennis and Dee Dee registered our guests and kept the line moving. Then, Dee Dee released the tables for dinner. Starving, I piled my plate high with Mama Russo’s mouthwatering mostaccioli, cudighi bites and homemade salads. Now that’s Italian food done right!

After scraping my plate clear, the great staff at the Red Rock Lanes whisked away my plate as Walt Lindala took the stage. Without a delay, he started drawing names and handing out t-shirts, visors, wine glasses and more from the mountain of door prizes next to him.

Then, BioLife gave away a $50 Visa Gift Card to Mike Kutchie, ServPro gave a carpet care kit to Kim Midthun, and Synergy Fitness gave away two massages to Crystal Hackett and John Basolo.

Next, it was time to pick out our finalists. How? By playing Bingo! The winner of each round stepped up to the front of the room and picked out an envelope. Was it the grand prize?

A drumroll started in the banquet area as the 8 finalists ripped open their envelopes. Then, Mike Kutchie excitedly held his envelope in the air! He won the grand prize!
