Mystery lottery winner gives hospital $10K ticket

Salina (KS) Journal, August 23, 2010

A generous Kansas Lottery player has given the Mitchell County Regional Medical Foundation in Beloit, KS, the gift of a $10,000 winning Powerball ticket. The surprise gift arrived in the mail anonymously July 28 with this note: "Please accept this gift for the Mitchell County Regional Medical Foundation for the good work you do. God Bless!" The ticket arrived at the hospital, unsigned. The $10,000 winning ticket matched four of the first five numbers and the Powerball in the July 17 Powerball drawing. The Lottery knows where and when the ticket was purchased -- at 1:54 p.m. July 16 at Pump Mart, 120 W. Eighth in Beloit -- but no one knows the identity of the player who purchased the ticket. The Kansas Lottery introduced foundation and hospital officials during a news conference at Lottery headquarters in Topeka on Friday.
