Rick Hamilton wins Ford truck in NILE raffle
April 18, 2016
NILE Youth Programs got a big boost last night and Rick Hamilton of Park City, Montana is the new owner of the NILE Raffle Truck donated by Montana Ford Stores.
"It's really amazing actually, I've never won anything before" commented winner, Hamilton.
Friday night in the NILE Professional Bull Riding hospitality room, after months of anticipation the winner was finally drawn for the Ford truck.
Hamilton has been a long time supporter of NILE, volunteering at the MATE show, and in the hospitality rooms at the rodeo and PBR. In fact, he was working when his name was drawn.
"I could hear them talking but couldn't really understand what they were saying because I was putting stuff away and then they told me I won. It was totally unexpected," relayed Hamilton.
Montana Ford Stores agreed to donate 100 percent of a vehicle to the NILE, the only stipulation being that the proceeds benefit kids. Money from raffle tickets will benefit NILE youth programs such as scholarships, the intern program, fourth grade ag education, and Jr. Fed Livestock Show and Sale.
