Jasper Woman Wins Trip To Vegas
A retiree from Jasper is looking forward to going back to Las Vegas after she uncovered the trip prize on a Missouri Lottery "$100,000 Ticket to Vegas" Scratchers ticket. Patty Zaerr, 72, said she and her husband, Kenneth, used to go to Las Vegas two or three times a year. However, she said due to illness, they haven’t been in about five years.
"We both need a trip," she said. "I was surprised. I wasn’t expecting it."
Zaerr purchased her winning ticket about one month ago at Judy’s Convenience and Liquor, 403 N. 4th St. in Jasper. She had put her winning ticket aside until she could claim it on Nov. 21, after her husband recovered from a recent surgery. Zaerr and her husband are retired from the farming industry.
"$100,000 Ticket to Vegas," a $5 game, officially went on sale July 30.
