The chance to win a growing pot of cash has become the biggest weekly social event in Park Falls.
Each Wednesday, the American Legion Post 182 hosts a drawing in which the winner has the chance to walk away with half of the jackpot. The Oct. 23 jackpot was set at $109,956. The other half of the winnings stay with the Post to benefit charitable causes. If nobody wins, the pot increases and rolls into the next week, which is what has happened for several months.
