“I hope to enjoy some quality, stress-free family time” said Lake Elmo Man after Receiving $5,000 Award
LAKE ELMO, MN – If you received $5,000 cash for playing a free trivia game, what would you do? Dan Van Ampting of Lake Elmo, MN is lucky enough to think about this question since he’s the latest recipient of Givling’s Free $5,000 Queue.
“This past year has been tough. I have two little girls and we haven’t seen most family and friends in over a year. However, life is beginning to return to normal. We plan to use the $5,000 to not think about normal stresses like daycare, vehicles, house repairs, etc. and use it to enjoy some stress-free quality time as a family” shared Van Ampting.
Furthermore, Dan and his family have turned a passion project, wake surfing, into a business this past year. It’s something he has wanted to do for a long time and the $5,000 can help fund a few costs in the business.
Dan even shared they had a recent visitor from the Givling mascot. “Lake Elmo, MN is an amazing community that for many years was able to avoid urban sprawl even though it is only a few miles outside the Twin Cities. We worked incredibly hard to purchase a home in Lake Elmo and were rewarded with a huge yard for our girls to run around and plenty of deer, turkeys, and recently a BEAR in the neighborhood.”
