BRUMLEY WOMAN GETS VALENTINE WORTH $8,888
A Brumley husband gave his wife an even bigger gift than he planned for Valentine’s Day when one of the four Missouri Lottery "Crazy 8’s" Scratchers tickets he gave her turned out to be worth $8,888. Marie Dunkeson, 37, said she and her husband, Eldon, plan to use the winnings to pay off bills.
Eldon Dunkeson said he bought the tickets for Marie at Degraffenreid Store in Brumley on Feb. 14.
"Crazy 8’s," a $1 Scratchers game, officially went on sale June 29, 2002.
