The Sandwich Lions Club has announced the winners of the annual steer raffle. Winning raffle tickets were drawn at the close of the Sandwich Fair.

The Black Angus cross steer, "Fred," was raised by Abby Piggott of Esmond, Illinois. The steer plus processing was won by Bryan Kubinsky of Plainfield. Chris Benson of Paw Paw won second prize, a $200 gift certificate, and the $100 gift certificate third prize was won by Brandon Pharr of Schaumburg.

The Sandwich Lions Club has conducted the annual steer raffle at the Sandwich Fair for more than 50 years. It is the club's largest fundraiser each year.

Through the support of the community year after year, the Lions are able to help throughout the community and beyond with services such as providing eyeglasses and vision exams for children and adults in need and making contributions to local organizations such as Open Door Rehabilitation Center and Fox Valley Older Adult Services.
