Lottery Millionaires Partner with Boys & Girls Clubs in St. Louis


More than 40 Missouri Lottery-made millionaires, with combined winnings totaling more than $304 million, will partner with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater St. Louis for their Triple Play Day 2014 on Aug. 1. The event is part of the Lottery’s Millionaires Reunion, held July 31 through Aug. 2.

“We couldn’t be more excited to be partnering with the Boys & Girls Clubs this year,” said May Scheve Reardon, executive director for the Missouri Lottery, who added that the millionaires participate in a community activity during each reunion as a way to give back. “The Boys & Girls Clubs makes such an impact on thousands of kids in the St. Louis area, providing them with a fun and safe place to go after school and during the summers. It ties in perfectly with our mission to help students further their educations and be more successful.”

The millionaires will be participating in the group’s annual Triple Play Day, celebrating the last day of the summer session by competing in activities such as a football challenge, jump roping, a soccer challenge and more.

"We are thrilled to be a part of this unique opportunity to share the Boys & Girls Clubs story and highlight the importance of investing in youth,” said Flint Fowler, president of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater St. Louis.  “The responsibility of educating and preparing our young people for the future cannot be shouldered by just a few.  The Missouri Lottery uses its platform to promote and celebrate the purposes education throughout the state.  The service rendered by the participants of the Millionaires Club reunion is appreciated.”

The charitable event is just one of the activities that are planned as part of the Lottery’s Millionaires Reunion. The millionaires will hear a presentation titled, “Retirement Income Planning and Maximizing Your Social Security Retirement Benefits,” presented by Neil Adams and Tim Jones, senior vice president and first vice president for Raymond James Financial, Inc., in St. Louis. The presentation will focus on how to properly maintain wealth and help the next generation financially.

They will also enjoy a tour of the Anheuser-Busch brewery and watch the St. Louis Cardinals® take on the Milwaukee Brewers.

Reardon explained that one of the greatest benefits of the reunions is the winners getting to talk to each other and share experiences.

“The millionaires can meet others who have also shared the good fortune of winning a life-changing prize,” said Reardon. “For some, these reunions are like family reunions, because they’ve become good friends with each other over the years.”

Reardon said the Missouri Lottery organizes the reunions, and the millionaires pay their own way at the events.

Since it began in 1986, the Lottery has created more than 400 millionaires, with prizes ranging from $1 million to $293.7 million.
