Maryland Lottery Winners Head to Chicago for Warehouse Dash Trip

Winners randomly selected from more than 6.2 million entries

For the third year in a row, lucky Marylanders are heading to Chicago to participate in the Maryland Lottery’s Warehouse Dash. This weekend, 12 excited winners and their guests will race around a merchandise-filled warehouse scooping up as many items as they can grab. The lucky winners were selected through the Maryland Lottery’s Holiday Cash & Dash promotion.

Winners receive a two-night, three-day trip-for-two to Chicago, including airfare, hotel, welcome reception/dinner, $500 in spending cash and participation in the Warehouse Dash.

During the Dash, each winner has 90 seconds to run through a merchandise-filled warehouse and grab as many items as possible, including name-brand consumer electronics, housewares, outdoor/patio items and much more.  Each team will consist of a winner and their guest. One person will push the shopping cart while the other tosses the merchandise into the basket. The winners are:

  • Mary Adeboyeko, Laurel
  • Sylvia Bivans, Salisbury
  • Edward Brazzle, Baltimore
  • Timothy Clevinger, Rockville
  • Michael Finlayson, Bel Air
  • Billy Fyffe, Parkville
  • Bob Ignatowski, Sr., Parkton
  • Umair Imtiaz, Odenton
  • Bilal Mustafa, Dundalk
  • Monica Myers, District Heights
  • Kishan Patel, Gaithersburg
  • Shalina Sharma, Windsor Mill


This year’s Holiday Cash & Dash second-chance promotion ran from October 23, 2017 through January 15, 2018. Players received entries into the contest by submitting non-winning holiday-themed scratch-offs into their My Lottery Rewards account. In addition to the 12 Warehouse Dash prizes, the Lottery awarded 262 other prizes including cash prizes of $10,000, $5,000 and $1,000, and 120 scratch-off prizes.
