By Herald Staff

JASPER — The Jasper Strassenfest revealed the winning ticket number for the 2021 Half Pot on Wednesday morning. The winning ticket number is: A-3269763

The final total for this year’s Jasper Strassenfest Half Pot was $141,110 with $70,555 going to the winning ticket holder. The Jasper Strassenfest held a live drawing at the Jasper Train Depot to reveal the number. In order to claim the prize, the winning ticket holder should call the Jasper Chamber of Commerce at 812-482-6866 and provide contact information. A Jasper Strassenfest Committee member will get back with them and make arrangements to meet at the Jasper Chamber of Commerce at 302 W. Sixth St. in Jasper.

Proceeds of the Half Pot will benefit the VU Jasper Scholarship Fund to include one year of full tuition, a $500 book stipend, and laptop for local scholarship recipients. Proceeds will also help to provide protection for non-profits involved in the Strassenfest in case of another catastrophic event and a strong financial base for the continuation and growth of the Strassenfest and the Jasper community.

“The initial idea behind adding a half pot event was to expand upon our mission to support causes in the Jasper community and to begin a rainy-day fund for non-profits,” said Half Pot Chair Kim Lottes. “VU Jasper plays a huge role in the Jasper and Dubois County community and we are excited to have the opportunity to make a big impact by donating a large portion of the proceeds to their Scholarship Fund."
