Local family wins ‘golden ticket’ for SDN anniversary celebration
summit daily news
SUMMIT COUNTY – When Paige Scheuermann picked up a Summit Daily News anniversary edition on Saturday at the Breckenridge City Market, she walked down three aisles before realizing she was the golden ticket winner. The ticket represented $1,000 in prizes from a variety of local businesses, and the campaign was put together by the Summit Daily News to celebrate businesses, organizations and individuals that have contributed to Summit County’s character.
“After the third aisle (in City Market), I bought a lot more canned food,” Paige Scheuermann said, and she donated them to the Boy Scouts in thanks for her good luck. “The most fun thing about it is you’re not getting $1,000 in cash. You’re getting prizes that you can use with family or friends, or even a stranger. I’m going to make a stranger’s day I think.”
Local Boy Scouts acted as paperboys Saturday and handed out Summit Daily News anniversary editions in exchange for canned goods to be donated to the Family and Intercultural Resource Center (FIRC) food bank. The Summit Daily anniversary issue was created to celebrate the paper’s 20th anniversary, as well as other longtime local businesses. The special section is full of classic photos, trivia questions and stories about the county’s recent past.
Ali Khavari, the only newsboy volunteer not associated with the Boy Scouts, handed out the winning paper to Paige Scheuermann. He’s a senior at Summit High School and was earning community service hours Saturday when the ticket was discovered.
A Summit Daily News van was filled to the brim with food donations after the event Saturday, and $100 is cash was donated to FIRC, said Shawn Butler, SDN circulation manager.
“The Summit Daily is delighted to see that a local family with long-standing ties to the county benefited from our anniversary golden ticket prize,” said Summit Daily News advertising manager Maggie Butler. “The Summit Daily News is about connecting communities, and this promotion came full circle in terms of accomplishing that.”
Scheuermann moved to Summit County in 1999, and her husband Tom Scheuermann is a Summit High School graduate. They have a young son named Harbor. The family owns T.S. Construction and Engineering, and they live in Breckenridge. Scheuermann also works as a substitute teacher in the district.
“I enjoy the Summit Daily,” Scheuermann said. “We always go down and get the paper in the mornings.”
The recent Mark Fox photo display at the Silverthorne Pavilion kicked off the Summit Daily News anniversary celebration, and the anniversary issue distributed Saturday explored Summit County’s history – including businesses that have survived the test of time.
