Five Marylanders who took part in the American Classics Grand Prize event in Ocean City, Maryland are celebrating their wins. Agnes Brawner of Waldorf cruised away with the event’s top-prize of $30,000. Other winners won prizes ranging from $5,000 to $10,000 during a 50’s-themed stage selection on October 10th at the Inlet’s Endless Summer Cruisin’ classic car show. The five finalists were selected from a pool of 13,000 entries in the American Classics second-chance drawing.
Two Grand Prize finalists, Armond Whitlock from Severn and Rob Hahn from Rosedale won $10,000, two other finalists, Linda Ryan from Finksburg and Caren Evans from Forest Hill won the contest’s $5,000 prize. Finalists also received a two-night stay in Ocean City the weekend of the event, and $500 each.
To enter, players mailed in four non-winning American Classics scratch-off tickets. The winning entries were selected from more than 13,000 entries. With 80 percent of the ticket sold, the scratch-off still has one instant $30,000 prize remaining on the ticket.
