KEARNEY, Neb. – An Eaton Corp. retiree and his wife were named winners of the Nebraska CU League’s first Save to Win savings sweepstakes, a $25,000 grand prize.

LaVerne and Deann Brickner, long-time members of KEE FCU, said they plan to tithe, or donate 10%, of their winnings to their church, then after paying taxes on the prize, put the rest toward their mortgage. Though Brickner said it might make his family jealous, some of the money might go to taking his wife on an ocean cruise.
