ALEXANDRIA — The Alexandria Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce celebrated a Pot of Gold winner at its Wake Up Alexandria event on Friday, Nov. 18.

The event was hosted by Habitat for Humanity of Douglas County. Chamber Board President, Matt Gilbertson of Viking Bank, drew the winning organization, Legal Services of Northwest Minnesota, from the pot of more than 650 current Chamber members. The prize package was valued at $5,282.

Pot of Gold items were sponsored by many Chamber members.

The drawing is a highly anticipated part of each Wake Up event. Donations include business items, discounted services, gift certificates and promotional items. Every Chamber member is included in the drawing, but a representative of the business drawn must be present to win.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
