Woman wins in lottery giveaway

L’ANSE – A L’Anse resident recently competed on the Michigan Lottery’s “Play It Again” Giveaway. Evelyn Welch was among three finalists chosen from more than 9,888,000 entries for the opportunity to win the $1 million prize.

Players qualified for the “2nd Chance” event by entering nonwinning Lottery tickets into their Player’s Club account at michiganlottery.com. For every $10 worth of non-winning tickets entered, the player earned one entry into the contest.

Welch competed against Judith Powell of Essexville and Robert Helmink of Wyoming on Sept. 13. Although ultimately she did not win the $1 million prize, Welch took home a $5,000 appearance fee for her participation on the show.
