Osage Beach Woman Wins New Vehicle in Lottery Promotion
Cindy Westhoff, Osage Beach, started off the new year with a new vehicle. Her entry was drawn to win the top prize of a Chevrolet® Avalanche plus $500 in the Missouri Lottery’s "Holiday in the Driveway" promotion. Westhoff’s entry was drawn on Jan. 17 in the third and final drawing for the promotion.
"I’m going to talk to my husband," Westhoff said when asked if she would take the vehicle or the cash option. "My son is standing beside me saying, ’Truck, truck!’"
Westhoff said that she is leaning toward taking the vehicle prize rather than the cash option of $41,000.
In addition to Westhoff’s prize, 20 players won $1,000 for gas and 50 winners received $500 cash.
The Jan. 17 drawing was the final drawing in the "Holiday in the Driveway" promotion. For a chance to win, players entered the promotion by submitting $10 worth of any combination of eligible tickets.
A Pontiac® Solstice plus $500 was the grand prize awarded in the first drawing, and a new Jeep® Wrangler plus $500 was awarded in the second drawing. The Lottery will pay the standard withholding taxes for all three grand prizes. In addition to the grand prize, 20 winners were drawn to win $1,000 for gas and 50 winners were drawn for to win $500 cash in each of the drawings.
