Lucky Ladies: Shopping Spree in Store for Kansas City Sisters
Two Kansas City sisters are planning a "shopping spree" after winning Missouri Lottery prizes within weeks of each other. First, Shermaine Currie, 52, won a grand prize, a Cadillac® CTS® Sedan, in the "Ticket to Ride" promotion. Three weeks later, Shari Kennedy, 53, shocked her sister with a phone call informing her that she matched all five numbers in the Sept. 6, Show Me Cash drawing to win the $60,000 jackpot.
"I couldn’t believe it!" exclaimed Kennedy, referring to the moment she checked her Show Me Cash Quick Pick ticket on the computer.
On her way to work the following morning, the human resources manager stopped at a local convenience store to have a clerk scan the ticket to ensure it was a winner. After receiving confirmation, Kennedy "went back out to the car, rolled up the windows and just started screaming."
The mother of two said she plans to become debt free, help out her family and "go shoe shopping with Shermaine" with whatever is left.
Kennedy purchased the winning Show Me Cash ticket at Red X, 2401 N.W. Platte Road, in Riverside. The winning numbers from the Sept. 6 drawing were: 3, 21, 26, 27 and 28.
Show Me Cash
offers a rolling jackpot starting at $50,000, which increases by at least $5,000 at each drawing. Kennedy was the 109th Show Me Cash jackpot winner since the game began on Sept. 8, 2008. To date, more than $14 million has been awarded in jackpot prizes.
