(GOLD BAR WA.) -- Gold Bar’s Scott Kuver says he’s made his passion into a career and thanks to his recent $75,000 Lottery win, he’s planning on helping students in the community explore their passions, too.
A technician at Kirshner Trailer & Repair, Kuver spends his days working on RVs and trailers, and when he gets home he builds and sells custom choppers and cars.
“It’s my whole life,” Kuver said. “It’s what I love to do.” The lottery win will help him get more tools and start more projects, but Kuver told Lottery officials he’s most excited about helping out the local 4-H chapter.
“I want to find horse trailers to refurbish and then donate them to Monroe’s 4-H program,” Kuver said. “The kid’s faces light up when they talk about their horses, the same way mine does when I talk about my cars and my work. It’s a great thing to see and be a part of.”
Kuver said he’s personally more interested in horsepower as opposed to horses, but he loves helping the community and often does work for different community groups and members.
Kuver’s big win came from a “Festival Celebration” Scratch ticket that he purchased from the Start Up Grocery and Deli located at 36310 State Route 2 in Sultan on December 21, 2016.
Proceeds from Washington’s Lottery benefit the Washington Opportunity Pathways Account, providing grants to college students statewide.
