Lottery Announces Third Winner of Saints Second-Chance Drawing and Final Drawing Deadline
|Debra Boxie of Grand Coteau has a reason to smile after being selected as the Ultimate Saints Fan Experience winner from the third Lottery/Saints second-chance drawing.
Excitement overcame Debra Boxie when she found out that her entry in the third New Orleans Saints second-chance drawing from the Lottery had been selected as the Ultimate Saints Fan Experience winner.
"I kept asking 'are you serious?'" said the 54-year-old resident of Grand Coteau. "It's just so unbelievable and exciting."
Boxie and three guests will attend the Dec. 19 game in Club Level sideline seats to watch the undefeated Saints take on Dallas. She, along with her guests, will also enjoy pre-game field passes, one night accommodations at the Intercontinental New Orleans, dinner for four at Morton's Steakhouse and a parking pass.
Two finalists were also selected during the third second-chance drawing. Lawrence Hattier of Marrero (pictured at left) won an autographed Saints helmet and jersey, and Stacy Hagaman Novak of Blessing, Texas won an autographed Saints football and jersey.
The deadline for the Lottery's fourth and final New Orleans Saints second-chance drawing is Tuesday, April 13, 2010. During the final drawing, one winner will be selected to win a 2010 Ultimate Saints Fan Experience that includes four Plaza Sideline 2010 season tickets, a 2010 parking pass, four 2010 pre-game field passes, a tour of the Saints practice facility and lunch with the Saints head coach in the team cafeteria for up to four people, an autographed Saints football and an autographed Saints helmet.
To enter the final second-chance drawing, players should complete the information on the back of nonwinning $5 New Orleans Saints scratch-off tickets and mail each ticket in an envelope no larger than 4.5" by 9.5" to the drawing address printed on the back of the ticket. The entry must arrive at the second-chance drawing address by the April 13, 2010 deadline to be entered into the fourth and final drawing. Players can enter as many times as they wish, but each entry should be mailed in a separate envelope.
The Louisiana Lottery is solely responsible for administering the game and second-chance drawings.
In accordance with Lottery policy, the $5 New Orleans Saints scratch-off game will close Dec. 14 and prizes must be claimed at a licensed Lottery retailer or a Lottery office by April 13, 2010.
