Worzalla’s ice-fishing competition raises $1.5K
For the City Times
STEVENS POINT – Worzalla recently announced the winners of their “Reel it in for Reading” ice fishing competition, along with a $1,500 donation to support the Portage County Literacy Council.
Worzalla’s donation will go towards PCLC’s one-on-one tutoring and small group instruction programs.
The winners of the inaugural ice fishing competition are:
First place winner, Zach Fuller, of Iola, won $200 and an additional $100 for being the Worzalla associate with the largest catch. Fuller’s catch, a 103-pound sturgeon caught at Lake Winnebago, measured 71.3 inches. Fuller says that the sturgeon he caught is one of just 15 males over 100 pounds since the 1930s, when data first began being recorded.
Other winners were: second place, Kyle Weeks, Iola, $150; and third place, James Liebe, Stevens Point, $100.
As the first place winner of the Reel It In For Reading Competition, Fuller also won the honor of selecting the Iola Village Library to receive a $500 donation from Worzalla.
“We love seeing the community come together for reading and literacy through our fun winter competition,” said Brianne Petruzalek, vice president of human resources. “At Worzalla, we believe that literacy is a valuable skill that everyone in our community deserves access to.”
The PCLC works with adults across the county who come from different socioeconomic and racial/ethnic backgrounds to help them read, write, and speak English.
“Worzalla’s donation will help make literacy and education more accessible to adults in the area,” said Shannon O’Donnell, co-director at Portage County Literacy Council. “We thank every resident and Worzalla associate who participated in the inaugural Reel It In For Reading ice fishing competition.”
