“I’m so excited, you have no idea,” said Haight, a carpenter whose primary vehicle was a work truck. “I think I’ll visit family in Pennsylvania,” he said.
Haight picked up the Jeep on May 21 at Rockie Williams’ Premier Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram in Mt. Juliet.
Haight won the prize, valued at $60,328, including taxes paid by the lottery, when he entered eligible tickets into the lottery’s online “VIP Players Suite.” Once a ticket is entered, VIP suite members earn VIP rewards points they can use to enter drawings for merchandise and/or travel and experience packages. The lottery awarded a Stingray 225CR boat to a Cunningham player in February and a 2017 Ford Mustang EcoBoost premium convertible to a Gallatin winner last summer as part of the program.
“Offering a variety of prizes is just another way we can attract players, who in turn help support the programs funded by Tennessee Lottery dollars,” said Rebecca Hargrove, president and CEO, who was on hand to present the keys to Haight.
