EUCHA RESIDENT WINS $10K PLAYING POWERBALL
Chevy Gann, a resident of Eucha, Oklahoma, won $10,000 on Dec. 26 playing Powerball. He plans to put the money into savings.
The winning ticket was purchased at Speedy’s, a convenience store located at 907 N. Main St. in Jay, Oklahoma.
Gann has played the Lottery since it launched in Oklahoma. He said he plays a couple of times a month, or when the jackpot gets big.
Net proceeds of all Lottery games are used to support improvements and enhancements for Oklahoma education. More than $160 million has been contributed to education since November 2005.
Proceeds are used statewide to supplement existing funds for a variety of important purposes, including: teacher compensation and benefits, early childhood development programs, college scholarships, classroom technology and construction of educational facilities.
