Suburban woman hits it big with 50/50 win at Amboy Depot Days

Posted by wlpo on August 31, 2015

Every festival in the Illinois Valley has a 50/50 drawing but nothing comes close to the drama and cash involved with the Amboy Depot Days.

Kim Gerster of Carol Stream is this year’s 50/50 winner. Her share is just over $149,000, meaning nearly $300,000 worth of 50/50 tickets were sold this year for the Depot Days fundraiser. That broke last year’s record of $214,000 worth of tickets sold.

Randy Williams of Joliet also had his ticket pulled out which means he won the runner-up prize, a 2015 Chevy Cruze. Williams and Gerster weren’t at the festival when their names were called.
