Last month Jessica Garsed, an Augusta based medical librarian won $53,000 on Jeopardy. It could have been $54,600 but she got one question wrong. However, that question has lead to a $1600 donation to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Maine at Garsed's request.

The $1600 question was:

Nebraska’s Alan Simon made his fortune with mailable beef from this company.

To which she replied:

Omaha Steak

Unfortunately, she left off the "s" which the judges penalized her for, meaning she lost the 1600.
