Cedar Rapids Co-Workers Claim $1 Million Lottery Prize
Wooo Hooo! That's what some folks from Collins Aerospace are shouting right now.
We informed you last week that workers from Collins Aerospace were the lucky winners in the Iowa Lottery. Now the time has come for them to claim their prize! According to a press release, eleven members of The Dream Big Team which consists of 34 Collins Aerospace co-workers, claimed their $1 million prize at the Iowa Lottery Headquarters in Clive today. The prize was offered in the lottery's "Woo Hoo A Million For You Giveaway", which was a promotion that came about after another big prize in Iowa had expired without being claimed. Lucky for these guys!
Dream Big Team member, Laurie Ginder of Anamosa, made an entry into the promotion on behalf of her office pool at Collins Aerospace in Cedar Rapids. The Dream Big Team's big dreams were answered on June 19 when the $1 million prize was drawn. Congrats to this Cedar Rapids team!
