Probst Wins KCFB Foundation Truck Raffle


            Congratulations to Mike Probst of Elburn, who was named the grand prize winner in the Kane County Farm Bureau Foundation’s Truck Raffle!  Mike’s name was drawn from 1,719 entries at the conclusion of Farm Bureau’s Touch-A-Tractor event on March 29.  Given a choice of a brand new Chevrolet Silverado WT or $20,000 in cash, Mike has chosen the cash prize.
            Mike has been a long-time agent for COUNTRY Financial, currently serving clients from his office in Elburn.  Prior to beginning his career with the company, Mike served as a Director on the Board of the Kane County Farm Bureau.  Mike, who was one of the first people to buy tickets for the raffle, has given his support to Farm Bureau programs and services for most of his adult life.
