Michigan Announces $1M Vaccine Sweepstakes Winner
The winner of $1 million in Michigan’s COVID-19 vaccine sweepstakes says she plans to spend some of her winnings on her daughter’s college tuition.
In a public announcement over Zoom on Wednesday, LaTonda Anderson, of Grand Blanc, said she will also tithe a portion of her winnings.
The state launched a sweepstakes with $5 million in prizes to help it reach a 70% vaccination rate.
The state health department says 62.7% of Michigan residents have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.
Lt. Gov. Garlin Gilchrist II says the state still hopes to hit the 70% goal by Labor Day.
