It’s Super Bowl Weekend and somebody’s going to have a party!

Darlene Hankey of Emmetsburg is the winner of the “Super Sunday?Party Package.” She was so surprised!

“We got invited to a Super Bowl party, so I guess now I can bring the food,” said Darlene.

Darlene will be cheering for the Cardinals, but admits that the women will probably be watching more commercials than football.

“I graduated from Ayrshire and we didn’t have football there, so I don’t know much about the game,” she admits.

The Hankeys have been to two Rose Bowl games, though, once in 1985 and again in 1990, when Iowa was playing.

Darlene took home all of the goodies pictured and she will pick up a meat and cheese tray this weekend before the game.

Preliminary winners were drawn from participating businesses, and one overall winner was selected. Darlene says she probably registered at Hughes Pharmacy. Additional sponsors are Building Centers, Hardware Hank, Mansmith Pharmacy, Horizons Unlimited, Iowa Trust &?Savings Bank, Fareway, Laurens State Bank, Food Pride, Wentzel’s True Value, Dyno’s, City of Emmetsburg/Emmetsburg Municipal Utilities, Celtics Beverage and Dairy Queen.
