SECOND EXPLORER WINNERS DRAWN
Three more Missourians are now the owners of brand new 1999 Limited Edition Ford Explorers after their names were selected Monday in the second weekly drawing of the Missouri Lottery’s "Explor-A-Thon Mega Summer Spectacular." Ella Delassus, 68, of St. Louis (63123*), Charles Armstrong, 57, of Elkland, and Mary Yeager, 55, of Festus each will receive an Explorer package worth more than $43,000.
In addition to three Explorer winners, 500 entrants were drawn to win a $20 gift certificate to Sam Goody music store. (See complete list at www.molottery.com) The lottery received nearly 98,000 entries for the second drawing.
Delassus, who is retired from Southwestern Bell, said she could use a new car since her car is an ’88 Oldsmobile. Yeager is also looking forward to a new vehicle since she drives an ’83 Oldsmobile.
Armstrong isn’t sure what will happen with his new vehicle since the entries were produced with tickets he purchased for a group of around 40 co-workers at Rodeway Express in Strafford.
Promotion entry forms are automatically generated by the lottery terminals with each $5 purchase of Powerball, Missouri Lotto, SHOW ME 5, Pick 4 or Pick 3 for the current drawing until Sept. 4. Players should complete the entry form and either hand-deliver it to a Missouri Lottery office or mail it to:
PO Box 104711
Jefferson City, MO 65110-4711
Three more weekly drawings will be held on Aug. 23, 30 and Sept. 7 with deadlines for the drawings being 5 p.m. the Thursday prior to the drawing. Three Limited Edition Ford Explorer packages and 500 $20 gift certificates to Sam Goody will be awarded in each weekly drawing.
On Sept. 13, the grand-prize drawing will be held to award five Limited Edition Ford Explorer packages and 500 $20 gift certificates to Sam Goody. The entry deadline for that drawing is 5 p.m., Sept. 9.
The "Explor-A-Thon Mega Summer Spectacular" promotion is the second of the lottery’s two summer promotions. The Explor-A-Thon promotion gives players a chance to win one of 20 Explorers plus $500 cash, or one of 3,000 $20 gift certificates to Sam Goody. The promotion began July 26 and runs through Sept. 4.
