Great Falls: Special Olympic Champ Sells over 5000 Raffle Tickets So Far

GREAT FALLS — Every year, thousands of athletes across the state sell MTN Chevy raffle tickets for one of Special Olympics Montana’s largest annual fundraisers.

And when the organization releases the names of the top sellers, you can always find Jon Hargett’s at or near the top of the list.

Every weekday morning, Hargett takes the 7:08 a.m. inbound bus to downtown Great Falls and gets to work.

You can hear the jingle of his medals, and you can see the confidence in his stride as he travels from business to business getting owners, employees, and customers like old friends.

Jon’s personable nature has led to him being the top seller in the state five times, and he sold the winning truck ticket two years in a row.

This year alone, he’s already sold well over 5,000 tickets.

“I sell like 40 tickets a day, or eight books a day,” Hargett said.
