CHARLESTON — The prizes keep rolling out in Gov. Jim Justice’s “Do it for Babydog: Save a life, Change your life” sweepstakes.
On Wednesday, Justice announced the winners in the state’s third drawing, including Heather Coburn, of Princeton, who snagged the $1 million prize. Coburn works at Bill Cole Automall, in Bluefield. She was surprised by Justice when she joined her coworkers for a staff meeting.
The lottery held to encourage residents to get vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus.
Several area folks scored goodies Wednesday, including James Sanson, of Fairmont, who was gifted a custom-outfitted truck, and Samuel Powell, of Morgantown, who took home a lifetime hunting license. Michelle Holland, of Morgantown, walked away the owner of a lifetime fishing license.
Jon Oberly, of Morgantown, was the recipient of a custom hunting rifle, and Tonya Myers, of Morgantown, won a custom hunting shotgun.
Grafton resident Cheryl Weaver will spend a weekend free of charge in a state park of her choosing.
