Painted mixer ends up back in South Bend

Posted:

We've shown you the work of artist Dean Loucks - including the custom painted KitchenAid mixers. The folks at Macy's recently raffled off 5 of them.

Denise Goephrich from South Bend just happened to be a winner after entering at a Chicago store. Denise's mixer was damaged in the mail, so Macy's arranged for Loucks to do a new one and to ship it directly to her.

Loucks was surprised to learn the winner was from South Bend - and after putting in 35 to 40 hours on the new mixer - he was determined to hand-deliver it.

Loucks says, "Oh, it's just well, we need to get her to the store and pick it up because I'm not going to ship it. (laughs) I'll put it, carry it over, walk it from Elkhart to Granger if I need to. But we're not going to pick it up and ship it."

Here's where the world gets small. It turns out Louck's son, Ryan - recognized Denise's name. They go to the same church!

Geophrieh says, "I was surprised. It was like, 'That is just too cool. You know, everything!. I know, I've known him since well, for a long time. We won't say how long. Just you know it was just too funny that it was all local. "

Loucks joked this was so coincidental, 'We are going to get in trouble for this!"
