Not the Lottery But Fun to Receive Call Saying You’re a Winner!

Bought two raffle tickets  LAST JANUARY to support one of my student’s effort to fund her People to People Ambassador trip to Australia. They’ve been on my fridge, held by a magnet, for MONTHS!

Thanksgiving night an unknown number appeared on my cell phone. Was everything all right?

Yes, won two tickets to Sunday’s home Steelers Game.          It was unexpected and fun to get the phone call, saying, ” You won!”

(Now if I’m going to win the Mega Millions Lottery around here, I’ll have to actually purchase a lottery ticket one of these days)

Steelers Tickets and the original raffle tix which have been on my fridge door for months!

    I’m so excited for you! I should be cheering for Miami, but that is never the case! The last time I wore one of my 2 Pittsburgh T- shirts a little boy stopped me o say, “That’s my favorite team ;-))!”

  10. Wow, congrats to you! I buy two lotto tickets a week (on for the Wednesday drawing, the other for the Saturday drawing), but have yet to receive a call….

  11. Gee, Ruth! Considering how hard, let alone expensive, it is to get tickets to any NFL game, winning 2 to se the Steelers play is quite a prize! Good for you! Have a great time at the game. Buy yourself a foam finger. :)
