Marni Rogers, active duty at Altus Air Force Base, claimed the $10,000 prize in Saturday’s Candy Cane Cash “Sweet”stakes drawing. Marni got her ticket from Jersey Mike’s in Altus. Marni was so excited, she didn’t know what to say when asked what she was going to do with the money.
There were 600,000 tickets involved in the drawings that took place at the Altus City Auditorium Saturday. Of the 10 tickets drawn, only three people claimed prizes. Chris Rausch won a $100 winner, Meagan Ross won $400 due to roll over of three other $100 prizes, and Rogers was the $10,000 winner. See Tuesday’s edition for more photos and information about the drawings.
Look to the Altus Times website on Monday for ticket number that will be worth $1,000. The winning number will also be announced on local radio stations.
