Successful Iowa State Fair for Treasure Hunters
August 23, 2017
A stop at State Treasurer Michael L. Fitzgerald’s Great Iowa Treasure Hunt booth during the Iowa State Fair paid off for many fairgoers. “The Great Iowa Treasure Hunt booth had a very successful year at the Iowa State Fair,” Fitzgerald said. “New this year, fairgoers were able to make their claims directly at the booth and take advantage of our easy-to-use online claiming process.” Fairgoers found over 8,000 unclaimed properties, totaling more than $600,000 in value. The largest claim was over $63,000. Due to the new process, over $15,000 was paid before the end of the fair.
