KANSAS CITY MAN CLAIMS $25,000
St. Patrick’s Day was lucky for one Kansas City man when he won $25,000 tax paid* in last night’s SHOW ME 5 drawing. Hardy Green, 63, said he and his wife, Barbara, will probably use the money to get a new kitchen floor, pay bills, have a tree trimmed and share some with their five grown kids.
Green, who recently retired from Yellow Freight, said Barbara purchased the winning ticket at QuikTrip, 6641 Truman Road in Kansas City. The winning numbers were a combination of Barbara’s brother and sister’s birthdays. Those numbers are: 4, 5, 13, 14 and 29.
To date, 703 SHOW ME 5 players have won $25,000 tax paid since the game began in November 1994.
