Three clues relating to the envelope's location were released by the association late last week. They included "Go west, young man!" "A little birdy once told me 'there's no free lunch,'" and "There's no spaghetti, but it is a western."

The reference to the "west" and a "western" was hinting at the name Shane, the title of a classic western movie.

The second clue was a nod to the former Cock Robin restaurant that served lunch in the same location where Shane's Deli now exists.

The envelope was one of six hidden throughout downtown Wheaton Thursday morning that contained $40 cash and a $10 Downtown Wheaton gift card.

Other winners included:

• Michael Price of Wheaton, who found a winning envelope taped to the side of Billy's Closet at 117 North Main St. Clue: "Every girl's crazy about a sharp-dressed man."

• Preston Boyd of Wheaton, who found a winning envelope tied to a wrought iron fence on Liberty Street a few doors east of the State of Illinois Driver's License Office. Clue: "Drive 'em crazy!"

• Mark Holstein, Jr. of Wheaton, who found his winning envelope hidden near Holstein Garage located at 309 West Front St. Clue: "Holy cow!"

• Garry Thompson of Carpentersville, who found a winning envelope taped to the side of the Wheaton Drama building. Clue: "It's a mod, mod world!"

There is still one more person who found a winning envelope who has not come forth with their name or photo. The envelope was found Thursday taped to a bike rack at Midwest Cyclery.

Organizers of the cash dash are asking the person to contact the Downtown Wheaton Assocation office by calling (630) 682-0633 or emailing lori@downtownwheaton.com.
