Lottery names 10 finalists for summer promotion

Columbia, SC: All summer long the South Carolina Education Lottery has been Grilling Up Summer Fun, the lottery’s first statewide second-chance drawing.

Grilling Up Summer Fun,a summer promotional campaign, created a fun and responsible way to dispose of non-winning tickets generated by games of the SCEL. For nine weeks, lottery players sent non-winning, Top Dog, Bar-B-Que Bucks and Raceway Cash instant tickets to a special mailing address to enter into the drawing. The summer promotion ended on August 20, 2002. Each drawing the SCEL chose 25 semi-finalists. Of the 225 semi-finalists, they each won $100 dollars.

“The response was great,” says SCEL’s Director of Marketing and Sales. “With this promotion, more than 125,000 non-winning tickets will be deposed of properly.”

On August 22, 2002 the lottery chose 10 finalists. Their names are the following:

Randy Powell (Name was chosen twice) of Lexington
Conley Stephens of Conway
Lois Bannister of Belton
William Robinson of Williston
Doreen Mack of Hopkins
Virginia Jackson of Society Hill
Earl Williams of Sumter
Margarie Edmunds of Ridgeway
John W. Huff of Dalzell

The 10 finalists will win $1,000, a Ducane Grill along with $1,000 or a Ford F-150 or Escape. The grand prize drawing will held at the Pulliam Expo Center on August 28, 2002 at 5:30 pm.

In reversed order, 6 will win $1,000 cash (minus taxes), the next 3 will win 1 of 3 Ducane grills (valued at $519) along with $1,000 (minus taxes) and the 10th finalists will receive his/her choice of 1 of 2 Ford vehicles (F150 and Escape)

The Ducane grills were donated by Ducane.
