Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- Three lucky winners have come forward in the Bentleyville Golden Ticket contest.

Last month, Bentleyville organizers launched the "Golden Ticket Giveaway" contest to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the holiday lights display.

Five of the 6,000 candy bars sold throughout the Northland contained a golden ticket. The prize winners receive a package valued at $500 including a one-night stay at the Edgewater Hotel and Waterpark and train ride to Bentleyville.

Three winners have come forward so far including Boyd Peterson of Virginia, Kyle Olson-Merrick of Duluth and Nelson Reis of Boston, MA.

Two tickets still have yet to be claimed.

Originally the fundraiser was supposed to last six weeks, however organizers with Bentleyville say the public's response was so great that the candy bars lasted only one week.

They plan to hold the fundraiser again next year.
