Kim won almost $70,000 in cash and prizes.Sherwood resident Kim Crown got her chance at spinning the wheel and collecting a tidy prize package worth a whopping $66,650 as a participant on the wildly popular “Wheel of Fortune” game show.

“It was great,” said Crown. “It was a great time.”

The show aired Nov. 8 as Crown, along with her family and friends, gathered at AJ’s Sports Pub and Grub to watch her win money, an exotic vacation and a brand new car.

In the end, she solved the Bonusland Puzzle, PINKY RING, which earned her the car, a 2013 Fiat 500C Pop convertible valued at $21,950. She received another $5,000 in courtesy cash to boot. Earlier in the show she won a trip to Aruba, valued at $5,700. But the highlight was solving the final puzzle before the bonus round, BARKING UP THE WRONG TREE, which resulted in a $30,000 cash prize.
