The United Way Prize Patrol secret agents tracked down another weekly winner.

Secret agents surprised Rincon Elementary School music teacher Kimberly Tucker (second from left) with a gas grill (valued at $600) and $400 in Piggly Wiggly gift cards. Tucker was weekly winner number 5.

During the 12-week campaign, anyone who attends one of the United Way’s campaign presentations can enter their name for a chance to win one of 12 prizes worth approximately $1,000 each that have been donated by local merchants.

You too can enter to win one of the seven remaining prizes. Call Gordon or Sikes at the United Way Effingham Service Center, 826-5300, for the details.
