West Mifflin Man Wins a Harley in Lottery's 2nd-Chance DrawingMIDDLETOWN, Pa. - Dec. 6, 2001 - A resident of Allegheny County is the Pennsylvania Lottery's most recent winner of a Harley-Davidson Sportster(R) 1200 Custom(TM) motorcycle.
John Chavis, 46, recently won his prize through the Lottery's HARLEY-DAVIDSON(R) USA instant ticket second-chance drawing. Mr. Chavis is the fourth HARLEY-DAVIDSON(R) USA motorcycle winner drawn in second-chance drawings conducted as part of the HARLEY-DAVIDSON(R) USA instant game promotion.
Mr. Chavis will receive his motorcycle Thursday, December 6, 2001, during a special presentation at noon, at Hermitage Harley Davidson, Inc., located at 1122 Lebanon Road, Route 885, West Mifflin, Allegheny County.
Presenting Mr. Chavis the keys to his new Harley will be the Lottery's Director of Public Relations Sally Danyluk, assisted by Area V Manager Terri Hopkins, Area V Supervisor Eric Grubbs and District Lottery Representative Margaret Dellana. Heritage Harley-Davidson's Finance and Insurance Manager Beth Majcher will host the event.
When John entered last year's HARLEY-DAVIDSON second-chance drawing, he won a prize package. But he won a much bigger prize the second time around in this year's second-chance Harley drawings. John recalls, "When I received a call from the Lottery that I won a Harley, my family and I couldn't believe I won the grand prize motorcycle. So, I turned on my computer and checked the Lottery's web site," he continues, "and when I saw my name listed as a Harley winner, that's when I knew the Lottery win was for real."
John and his wife, Teresa, have a 16-year-old son.
As part of the Lottery's HARLEY-DAVIDSON(R) USA instant game promotion, 1004 second-chance drawing prizes were awarded (four (4) Harley-Davidson(R) Sportster(R) 1200 Custom(TM) motorcycles and 1,000 Harley-Davidson(R) merchandise packages).
Each merchandise package consists of one Harley-Davidson(R) hubcap duffel bag, telephone, blanket, leather baseball cap, T-shirt and playing card deck in a full-color collectible tin.
Motorcycle prizes include required federal withholding taxes, sales tax, dealer prep and set-up charges, shipping / handling charges and title / registration fees. The Pennsylvania Lottery will not be responsible for additional taxes that may come due when the winner files a tax return. There is no cash equivalent for the motorcycle or the second-chance merchandise prizes.
Winners will be notified of their prize and will be required to furnish social security number, valid driver's license and proof of vehicle insurance after all verification has taken place.
Odds of winning the HARLEY-DAVIDSON(R) USA second-chance prize depended upon the number of entries received. After the final second-chance drawing, any remaining entries will be null, void and ineligible for entry into any other contest conducted by the Pennsylvania Lottery.
The Pennsylvania Lottery remains the only state Lottery that designates its proceeds to benefit older citizens. Since inception nearly 30 years ago, the Lottery has contributed $12.1 billion to these programs.
