Thanks to a winning raffle ticket purchased at an Iowa home football game this fall, University of Iowa alumnus Mike Walker and his family are traveling to Tampa Bay, Fla. to see the Iowa Hawkeyes play the University of Florida Gators in the Outback Bowl.
After last year’s successful raffle of a Harley Davidson motorcycle, which raised more than $20,000 to refurbish Engine Co. 55 of the New York City Fire Department, Joe Sulentic and the students in his Entrepreneurship and New Business Formation class decided to focus on Iowa-based projects.
Over the past several months, students in Sulentic’s class in the Henry B.
