Thursday’s ‘Hot Drawing’ was one of the more popular thus far, probably due to the fact that a half-cord of wood was being given away.
Mary Sattler of Bethel won the firewood in Friday’s drawing, and was thankful to hear her name called as she was just about to head out the door to cut pallets as the announcement was made on KYUK.
Ana Hoffman of Bethel won the 10lb bag of organic produce donated by Meyer’s Farm.
KYUK was so enthused with the participation in Friday’s ‘Hot Drawing’ that it decided to include a ball cap- donated by Calista Corporation- in the drawing that was won by Betsy Taguchi.
The Kwethluk Kings will look to hold onto their title as the “Most Giving Village” from last year’s Village Showdown. Not only could they hold onto that Title-belt, but gain another in this year’s competition.
How the competition works:

Man’s best friend typically means an animal of the canine variety; however, on some level the argument could be made that man’s best friend may very well be the ever increasingly-ubiquitous smart-phone.
Tonight’s Hot Drawing has your dog, and your phone in mind as we have a prize for both!
You will be entered to win gourmet treats for your four-legged friend, or one of the nifty chargers that require no power to charge your phone.
Make a donation between 7pm and 8pm to be eligible to win.
