I recently had the privilege of traveling to Greenville, NC to present Mary C, our first $10,000 scratch card winner, her winning check. Since Mary was our largest winner to date, we wanted to personally congratulate her and film our infamous Lucktastic LuckCam in person.
Accompanied by my coworker Janice, we headed out bright and early on a Wednesday morning to catch our flight down to Charlotte. From Charlotte, we made a quick transfer to Greenville, a small town in eastern North Carolina. Once we landed, we only had a short drive to Mary’s home. As we pulled down Mary’s street, we weren’t completely sure which house was hers. But we were quickly greeted by Mary, who had been waiting for us by the window.
One of the absolute best parts of our job is getting to see the faces of our winners when we present them with their check. Mary was absolutely beaming and so thrilled to welcome us into her home and film the LuckCam. She was truly overjoyed and told us of her plans to use the money to start her own woodworking business. She even showed us some of the unique pieces she plans on making.
All in all, it was a perfect day (that even having to sprint across the Charlotte airport to catch my connecting flight back to New York couldn’t put a damper on).
