COLLABORATION RESULTS IN $10K POWERBALL WIN
Winning Powerball Ticket Sold in Yukon
A group of employees, from two companies sharing office space in Oklahoma City, won $10,000 on Sept. 12 playing Powerball.
About a year ago, three employees of Farmers Insurance, and six from Fiducial, an accounting and financial reporting firm, formed an inter-office Lottery pool, and began playing every draw.
They always purchase their tickets at Circle K, located at 1100 Lakeshore Dr. in Yukon, and select their numbers based on each individual’s favorite numbers.
The winners plan to use the money for a variety of things, including purchasing a grill, and maybe, for a trip to Disney World.
Members of the employee pool include: Nathan Brim, Broken Arrow; Alma Brim, Edward Haggard, Kevin Haggard (pictured), Anita Hill and Krystal Little, Oklahoma City; and Jeff Henderson, Carol Holbrook and Shirley Huntington, Yukon.
Following the win, the group added two new members to play in future drawings.
Net proceeds of all Lottery games are used to support improvements and enhancements for Oklahoma education. More than $154 million has been contributed to education since November 2005.
