COLUMBIA, SC (January 10, 2014) – For his birthday, William Young’s wife gave him seven Honda scratch-off tickets. He bought a few more but suspects it was her gift that won him the present he really wanted—a Honda ATV.
While his family doubted his chances of winning, even joked about it, he entered his non-winning tickets in the Lottery’s drawing anyway. From more than 80,000 entries received, Young has a brand new Honda Rancher 4x4 ATV parked at his Florence home.
“Now my wife wants one,” Young laughs.
He picked up his prize from the Florence Honda dealership on W. Palmetto St. before Christmas.
“We love it,” said Young.
The whole family is enjoying riding it on farm land they own and looking forward to taking it with them when they go hunting.
“I’ve won two things in my life,” Young said. An ATV beats a free can of paint any day.
Young was one of five South Carolina Education Lottery winners selected to win a Honda ATV in the first of three drawings. A total of 15 ATVs will be won, all built at the Honda plant in Timmonsville, SC.
Five more ATV winners will be announced on Thursday, January 30. Enter non-winning Honda tickets online or by mail by Thursday, January 23, to be eligible.
