Lottery Declares Brandon, Miss. Woman Winner of Third Saints Second-Chance Drawing
Longtime Saints fan Nancee Searcy was incredulous after being told she was the Louisiana Lottery's third 2010 Saints Prize Package winner, earning her four Club Sideline tickets with clubroom access to the Dec. 12 Saints game against St. Louis in the Superdome.
"The lady from the Lottery called and told me everything I had won, and when she got through I asked 'Now my tickets are going into a drawing for all this?'" explained the 60-year-old Brandon, Miss. resident. "She said 'No, you won,' and I said 'Woo hoo!'"
Searcy was declared the winner after her nonwinning World Champions New Orleans Saints scratch-off was randomly selected from more than 39,000 second-chance drawing entries. In addition to the tickets, Searcy will receive pregame field passes, a parking pass, one night hotel accommodations (two rooms), a $200 dinner allotment and $500 spending cash.
Nine finalists were also selected during the third Saints second-chance drawing. Frances Musco of Ball, Juanita Dusek of Slidell and Shawna Ragan of Kentwood each won an official autographed Saints helmet. Cindy Hallack of Baton Rouge, Susan Thibodeaux of Vinton and Jerico Blayne Carlton of Baton Rouge each won an official autographed Saints football. Dana Hale of Delhi, Marie Patin of St. Martinville and Alfonso Williams Sr. of Monroe each won an official autographed Saints jersey.
The Lottery reminds players that the entry deadline for its fourth and final World Champions New Orleans Saints second-chance drawing will be announced once the game is closed.
During the final second-chance drawing, one entry will be selected to win a 2011 Saints Prize Package that includes four 2011 Plaza Sideline season tickets, a 2011 parking pass, four 2011 pregame field passes, a tour of the Saints Practice Facility and lunch with the Saints head coach for up to four people.
To enter the final second-chance drawing, players should complete the information on the back of nonwinning $5 World Champions New Orleans Saints scratch-off tickets and mail one ticket per 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 announced final entry deadline to be eligible for the 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. Complete rules can be found on the Lottery's website.
