Huang then donated the entirety of her winnings back to United Way saying, “I believe nobody donates in hope to win money. I give because I care a lot about underprivileged families and students.”

Heritage Federal sponsored the giveaway and provided the prize money. No donor funds were used for the drawing.

United Way’s annual campaign raised more than $3.3 million dollars and will help thousands of individuals and families in Southwestern Indiana reach their full potential.
