PRYOR WOMAN WINS TOP PRIZE PLAYING MUSTANG MONEY SCRATCHER
Oklahoma City (May 29, 2009) – Kimberly Ingram of Pryor won $25,000 playing the Oklahoma Lottery’s Mustang Money Scratcher.
She purchased her winning ticket at Kum & Go #841, 1005 E. Will Rogers Blvd, in Claremore. Ingram regularly plays the Lottery and while she won’t be purchasing a Mustang with her new cash, she’s definitely buying some new wheels.
“I’m going to buy a new car,” Ingram said. “But probably a Chevy Cobalt.”
Ingram adds that she thinks it’s great that the Lottery proceeds help support Oklahoma education.
“I’m all for the schools receiving money to help the students.”
