ST. LOUIS WOMAN WINS FORD EXCURSION IN PROMOTION
Jacqueline "Jackie" Windhorst of St. Louis (63129*) will start her summer in style after her name was drawn to win the grand prize 2002 Ford Excursion and $500 cash in the Missouri Lottery Pick 3 "Road Trip Promotion" drawing held June 12. The prize is valued at approximately $64,490.
Windhorst, who works as a clerk at Schnucks Market, 10070 Gravois in Affton, said she had been having a bad day before she received the call notifying that she won the Excursion. She said winning the prize "was one of the best things" that ever happened to her.
"I had been looking for a new car," said Windhorst, who currently drives a ’94 Jeep Cherokee Sport.
Windhorst said she had approximately 20 entries in the drawing.
In addition to the grand-prize Excursion, the Lottery also drew 75 names, and each of those winners will receive a 64-inch rear-projection television. Another 40 players’ names were drawn to win $598 cash - the same amount as the top prize in the Pick 3 game. There were a total of 352,815 entries submitted for the promotion.
During the promotion, which ran from April 15 through May 12, when players made a $3 single-ticket Pick 3 purchase for the current draw, the Lottery terminal produced an entry ticket in which to enter the drawing. Players submitted the entry slips in boxes at participating retail locations, at Missouri Lottery offices or by mailing them to the Lottery.
