St. Louis Group Named November Lottery Team of the Month
Congratulations to "Jedmed ESOP" of St. Louis! The group has been named the Lottery Team of the Month for November as part of the Missouri Lottery’s 2006 Lottery Captain’s promotion. The promotion awards a Lottery players’ group with prizes and a feature at Molottery.com each month during the calendar year.
"Jedmed ESOP" is a group of 28 co-workers from Jedmed Instrument Co. in St. Louis. The employee-owned company is a manufacturer and distributor of medical products. The members are: Dawn Sitze (team captain), Tom Williams and Kelly Guehne, all of Oakville; James Lankford, Dana Smetana, Liz Golomski, Craig Rapp, Dan Wolff and Cathy Kinstler, all of St. Louis; Cheri Hilke, Manchester; Tom Schreiber, Fenton; Dan Kroupa, Dawn Gross, Craig Parks, Heather Meyer and Stan Warren, all of Arnold; Mike Godfrey, Valley Park; Glen Cavagna and Tom Solomon, both of Hillsboro; Jeanne Norma, Pevely; Sharon Larose, Festus; Mike Harper; Ferguson; Chris Swift, Park Hills; Shannon Brooks, Bloomsdale; Eric Heuerman, Mehlville; Dan Kruse, St. Charles; Wayne Cornett, Filmore, Ill.; and Cari Reinneck, Smithton, Ill.
The group started playing together about 12 years ago. They wanted to give something more fun than cards for birthdays. The group decided to give Missouri Lottery Scratchers tickets instead. To celebrate office birthdays, each employee gives the birthday honoree $2 worth of Scratchers. The largest prize any team member has won was $100.
Sitze says it’s easy to tell when somebody has won a birthday prize.
"You can hear everyone screaming," Sitze said.
