FUN" WINNERS FROM PROMOTIONS AT DEWEY BEACH ARE ANNOUNCED
BY THE DELAWARE LOTTERY
Dover, DE --Two Delaware residents
have received grand prizes from the Delaware Lottery SUMMER
FUN second-chance drawings as a part of summer live event
promotions in Dewey Beach. The winners, Lillian Hart of Rehoboth
Beach and Joe Lynch of Millsboro, were each awarded $1,000
in cash after their non-winning SUMMER FUN tickets were drawn
as part of the Delaware Lottery's SUMMER FUN promotion held
during the month of August.
The Delaware Lottery held weekly events during the month of
August in Dewey Beach at the Starboard with WXJN-FM Cat Country
and Taco Toss at The Lighthouse with WOSC-FM. These events
included live radio broadcasts, Instant Game ticket giveaways
and a chance to enter non-winning tickets in a drawing for
two $1,000 grand prizes. Winners were announced during live
on-air broadcasts earlier this week. Lottery talent, comedian
Geno Bisconte entertained patrons with Lottery trivia and
t-shirt giveaways. Participants at the events were also given
the opportunity to have their picture taken while having fun
with friends and received a souvenir photo and frame card.
"The summer promotions are another opportunity for Delaware
Lottery players to try new games, have fun and get a second-chance
at winning a $1,000 cash prize," said Brian Peters, deputy
director of sales and marketing for the Delaware Lottery.
"This is our fifth year hosting events at various venues
statewide and they continue to be a popular draw for patrons."
The Delaware Lottery will hold events on Thursdays during
the month of September at Klondike Kate's on Main Street in
Newark with WRDX-FM. Additional information is available on
the Delaware Lottery website, www.delottery.com.
