And the grand prize winner is…
Cash Knoeferl was announced as this year’s grand prize winner and was awarded a bicycle!
When announced as this year’s winner, Knoeferl’s mother expressed her excitement for her son winning. She advised that the announcement lifted her son’s spirits after an unfortunate event occurred over the weekend that left Knoeferl undergoing surgery after being burned by a campfire while camping with his family. Although, one could possibly not have noticed the hardship faced when seeing Knoeferl redeem his grand prize with much excitement.
When asked how he felt on being this year’s grand prize winner, Knoeferl responded with “Good.” When asked his thoughts of his new bike, his smile gleamed bright and he said, “I like it. I hope it will go fast. I like fast.”
SPD Chief Randy Ellison states that the agency thoroughly enjoyed hosting this year’s summer event and appreciates parents/guardians for actively participating in the program with local youth.
