SEDALIA WOMAN WINS $6,000 AT FAIR
Instead of spending lots of money at the State Fair, one Sedalia woman came home $6,000 richer after she won the grand prize in the Missouri Lottery’s "Second Chance for Fun & Fortune" game show Sunday. Linda Eickhoff, 54, said she will use the money to pay off a vacation and take her husband on a date.
Eickhoff is a tax examiner for the Internal Revenue Service.
Players entered non-winning "Fun & Fortune" Scratchers tickets at the Lottery’s booth between noon and 4 p.m. for a chance to participate in the simulated show. The show was held at 5 p.m. in the Matthewson Exhibition Building.
