Winning games and lucky spins of wheel shower charity with man’s winnings
San Francisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/05/2012 -- This carnival didn’t see this senior citizen coming. Peter Drakos, of Detroit, Michigan, has become the champion of carnival games. From the ring toss to the free-throw basketball, by winning these games, Drakos has collectively won hundreds of thousands stuffed animals. After this successful win at the park, the amusement park management decided to place a cap on how many prizes can be won by a single player.
Drakos started his carnival game mastery at the tender age of nine. He took on all the games and activities at the local fair and won around 200 stuffed animals, which was enough to give to each child at his school.
This 64 year old has since spent his winnings in the name of charity and spread his prizes to over 50 non-profit organizations. One of Drakos most memorable winnings was way back in 1982 at the Michigan State Fair. He had won 32 human-sized bears in just 15 minutes, and they were forced to shut the booth down.
He ended up having to rent a storage unit to house all his cuddly new friends. And although he feels like he is serving good deeds, the management at said local state fairs feel a lot less thrilled about the constant winnings. The local parks have had to create a limit on how many prizes an individual can score.
Drakos states that he doesn’t want to have to say that all of this is because of him, but he knows that it is all because of him. And despite the new caps on winnings, he seems to still manage to clean up darn well.
