Scott City woman wins lottery prize
Ramona Glastetter Blankenship and her new Chrysler PT Cruiser GT were driven onto U.S. Cellular Field at the end of the Chicago White Sox game on Saturday. Once on the field she opened the trunk and found out she was $25,000 richer. Robin Leach of the TV show "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous" was even there to emcee.
Blankenship, of Scott City, and 19 other finalists in the Illinois Lottery's Second Chance game found out last May that they'd won cars and the right to participate in the Road to Riches game. Each finalist had the random chance of winning from $25,000 to $1 million.
"You enter a lot of drawings and then you finally win something like this, it's really exciting," she said.
She plans to take her husband, Bruce, and their two children, Ramona and Louise, to Disney World sometime next year and also pay off some bills.
Marian Domanski of Rockford, Ill., won the $1 million grand prize and a new Chrysler 300C.
