(Mankato, MN) – A Janesville woman took a chance, then took home a huge prize from the United Way’s Fire & Ice raffle.

Karen Roozen bought a raffle ticket to win a customized Ice Castle Walleye Tracker fish house worth $15,700 the day before the Fire & Ice gala Saturday.  Roozen wanted to surprise her husband – who is an avid outdoorsman – with the gift.  But when her name was drawn Saturday night, word got out quickly.

The Ice Castle was donated by Alpha Media Mankato and is a customized 8 foot by 17-foot house that can be utilized for a variety of outdoor activities.  Snell Motors will donate the installation of the ice fishing holes in accordance with the new owner’s design.

United Way sold 250 raffle tickets for the ice house, raising $25,000 for regional programs.
