About this Article

Michaela Neu was in disbelief when an announcer said she and her boyfriend Steve Kemper were the winners of a raffle at the Northwest Fourth-Fest in Hoffman Estates Thursday night. "When we were going up (to the stage) I was like, 'Steve, we never win anything!'" Neu said. But the 27-year-old was even more shocked as her boyfriend of two years got down on one knee, opened the box and revealed an engagement ring.
