WILMINGTON - In October 2018, a contest designed to encourage business development in Wilmington by granting an entrepreneur $20,000 came to a close. The contest was hosted by Wilmington Works and was made possible through a donation from Paul Pabst, a second-home owner who earned $20,000 on Sports Jeopardy and donated it to the town. Pabst served as a judge in the competition.
The contest ended with a tie. Hannah Cofiell, owner of Beurremont Bakery, and Paul Croutworst, owner of 802 Fitness and Therapy, each walked away with $10,000.
