Marieke Pentermen, proprietor of Holland's Family Cheese of Thorp, Wis., was awarded the top prize Wednesday night at the Legends Club Room, Lambeau Field Atrium, the Green Bay Press-Gazette reported Thursday.

"Can't believe it, can't believe it," Pentermen said. "This is awesome."

A tarentaise from Spring Brook Farms in Reading, Vt., took second place in the contest and a medium cheddar by Team Cracker Barrel Natural Cheese, Agropur Weyauwega, Wis., placed third.

John Umhoefer, executive director of the Wisconsin Cheese Makers Association, said the event raised $14,000 for Paul's Pantry, a food charity founded in 1984 by Leo Frigo following his retirement as president of Frigo Cheese.

"We had a great night," Umhoefer said. "We had about 250 people here from Green Bay to watch it and help out Paul's Pantry so we're very happy with it."
