Includes all-expenses-paid trip to Chicago
Eight Marylanders will head to Chicago this weekend with a lot of anticipation, and hopefully some empty space in their homes. The lucky winners from the Maryland Lottery’s holiday promotion will take part in a dream-come-true shopping spree this weekend, April 29-May 1.
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. Winners and guests will have set roles — one will push the shopping cart while their partner tosses the merchandise into the basket. The teams will race against the clock to grab items such as televisions, computers, vacuum cleaners, tools and more. The winners are:
• Anne Arundel County:
o John Lane from Annapolis
o Pratik Pandya from Glen Burnie
o James Rainge from Lake Shore
• Baltimore County:
o Kayleen Grant from Arbutus
o Ronald Taylor from Catonsville
• Harford County:
o Mary Kress from Forest Hill
• Prince George’s County:
o Harry Wolfe from Accokeek
• Somerset County:
o Zachary Meilhammer from Eden
The Lottery’s Holiday Cash & Dash second-chance promotion ran from October 16, 2015 through January 17, 2016. Players who entered $10 worth of non-winning holiday-themed scratch-offs into their My Lottery Rewards account during that time, were automatically entered into the contest. In addition to the eight Warehouse Dash prizes, the Lottery awarded four prizes of $10,000, 20 prizes of $5,000 and 160 prizes of $1,000. Winners were selected from a total of 368,387 entries.
