Todde and Michelle Folkerts were pleasantly surprised when Hy-Vee officers and employees made a surprise visit to their house at 1205 Ilion Ave. in Chariton this past Friday afternoon to let them know they were the winners of Hy-Vee’s Brands for Grands promotion.

Todde’s name was entered to win when he swiped his Fuel Saver plus Perks Card and purchased Hy-Vee private label products.

Todde and Michelle automatically received $100 for just being chosen and they had a chance to win the maximum amount of $2,500.

In order to win the full amount, they had to find and show 24 Hy-Vee brand items in their home in 10 minutes time. They obliterated this by finding 24 Hy-Vee brand products in the lightning quick time of 55 seconds to win the full $2,500.

Chariton Hy-Vee Food Store Director Rose Kline handed out the prize money to Todde and Michelle after they found the 24 Hy-Vee labels in their kitchen.

Kline said that Todde’s name was drawn at the Hy-Vee Corporate Office in West Des Moines this past week. She also said that the Folkerts’ would be the only winners of the promotion drawn from Chariton and the Lucas County area.
