SHATTUCK WOMAN WINS 2010 V6 MUSTANG CONVERTIBLE!
First Winner of Oklahoma Lottery Mustang Money Promotion
Oklahoma City (May 7, 2009) – Deana Bilyeu will soon be riding in style. She’s the first of four players to win a 2010 V6 Mustang Convertible through the Oklahoma Lottery’s Mustang Money promotion.
The Shattuck resident manages Tom’s Quick Stop, 523 S. Main St., in Shattuck. She and her husband just happened to be shopping for a Mustang.
“I’ve never owned one and I saw one on the road a few months ago and thought, ‘That’s the car I want,’” said Bilyeu. “We heard about the Mustang Money promotion then we decided to put our search on hold and try the promotion.”
“I just had a feeling about it,” she said. “All day on Friday, May 1, I kept thinking that the Lottery might be calling soon but then I got busy and forgot about it.”
Her perspective changed, however, when she received a call with a 405 area code.
“The Lottery called me during the lunch hour when our store is usually packed,” she said. “So when I learned I had won, I yelled to the crowd, ‘I won the Mustang!’”
Bilyeu hasn’t received her car yet but she has plenty of people in line for rides—especially from her teenage daughters. She and her husband, Alan, have six children—daughters Heather, 25, Brittney, 18, and Morgan, 17, and adult sons, Trever, Taylor and Tyler.
“We’re a one-car family and having another car is going to be great,” she said. And it certainly doesn’t bother her that it’s a brand new Mustang Convertible.
Bilyeu will receive her car during a special presentation once the 2010 car models are released from the factory later this month.
The Oklahoma Lottery will be awarding three more 2010 V6 Mustang Convertibles through the Mustang Money promotion. Entries are currently being accepted and upcoming drawing dates are June 16, 2009 and July 31, 2009. The fourth and final drawing date is not yet determined. See the Oklahoma Lottery website for more details.
