Lottery Awards Cardinals Season Tickets
Two Missouri Lottery players are the newest St. Louis Cardinals season ticket holders after the second drawing for the Lottery’s Major League Baseball® "Catch the Cardinals™" promotion. Sandra Welch, Huntsville, and Kathy Ivy, St. James, each won the grand prize of St. Louis Cardinals 2008 season tickets for two in the "Catch the Cardinals™" promotion in a drawing held on Oct. 4.
"I did?" replied Ivy when a Lottery official informed her of her prize. "I cannot believe this. This is too cool."
Three other players won big prizes in the "Catch the Cardinals™" drawing:
- Clark Harrison, St. James, won St. Louis Cardinals 2008 single game tickets for a luxury box for up to 30 people;
- John McCloud, Hannibal, won a road trip for two to Chicago for a St. Louis Cardinals vs. Chicago Cubs game including airfare, hotel accommodations, $500 spending money and two tickets to the game; and
- Andy Ingrande, St. Charles, won two premium tickets to a St. Louis Cardinals home game including dinner, hotel accommodations and a ceremonial first pitch before the game.
In addition to the prizes listed above, 300 winners were drawn to receive Cardinals prize packages in the "Catch the Cardinals™" promotion. The merchandise packages includes a jersey, cap, jacket, wind shirt and duffle bag.
The Oct. 4 drawing was the last of three drawings in the Missouri Lottery’s "Catch the Cardinals
™" promotion, which started on March 28. A similar promotion was being held featuring the Kansas City Royals.
