Greentop Woman Wins $1,000 At Breakfast
A Greentop woman has an extra $1,000 to help celebrate the holidays this year after she uncovered the prize on a "Sapphire Blue 7’s" Scratchers ticket on Nov. 12. Gloria Aldridge, 53, said she and her husband, Ronnie, were on their regular morning stop to R & R Market in Queen City to buy Scratchers tickets and eat breakfast. While they were waiting for their food, they scratched off a $1,000 winner.
Aldridge, a retired shipping clerk for Hollisters Inc., said she plans to use her winnings for Christmas and help pay her annual property taxes.
Not only has Aldridge had luck playing Scratchers, she also won $750 on three different occasions this past year playing SHOW ME 5 Paydown.
"Sapphire Blue 7’s," a $2 game, officially went on sale July 3.
