WITH ULTIMATE HARLEY-DAVIDSON® PRIZE

COLUMBIA, SC: On Friday, September 8, South Carolina Education Lottery (SCEL) officials paid Pamela Fernandez a surprise visit, prize patrol style, to inform her she was the final Ultimate Harley-Davidson® second-chance drawing grand prize winner.

“I can’t believe this,” said Fernandez, of Ruffin. “I am shaking in my pants.”

The prize is a brand new Harley-Davidson® Fatboy® motorcycle along with a Ford Harley-Davidson™ Edition F-250 truck valued at $110,000.

“We are serious Harley fans,” said Fernandez. “My husband has a sportster.”

Fernandez’s name was chosen in a second-chance drawing on August 22. In an effort to surprise her, SCEL officials informed Fernandez she was one of five finalists. SCEL proceeded to pack up the Mini Lottery Express with balloons and a congratulations poster and made the two hour trek to Ruffin to knock on Fernandez’s door.

“When you arrived at my house, I didn’t think I was the grand prize winner,” said Fernandez. “I was expecting the Lottery to come with the truck and bike on a trailer. I’m glad I was home.”

In June 2005, SCEL launched the Ultimate Harley-Davidson® instant ticket. The game officially ended earlier this year. Players had the chance to win up to $100,000. Players could also instantly win a Harley-Davidson® Fatboy® motorcycle. SCEL is the first lottery in the nation to feature the Fatboy® on an instant ticket. In addition to Fernandez’s prize, a Harley-Davidson® Fatboy® motorcycle along with a Ford Harley-Davidson™ Edition F-250 truck was awarded at last year’s State Fair in Columbia.
