Here is the official statement “We hope that by literally injecting a little fun into the process, more people will be vaccinated,” said Mary Harville, Kentucky Lottery President and CEO. “This is good for Kentucky business, it’s good for the Kentucky Lottery. And it’s good for the University of Kentucky students who rely on us through scholarship and grants programs that finance our earnings.” I hope this $ 225,000 shot will be the catalyst for more Kentucky residents to get a vaccine. Kentucky Governor Andy Peshire said. “Helping keep Kentucky communities safe and a free chance to win hundreds of thousands of dollars is a win-win for everyone involved. Thank you, Kentucky Lottery, Walmart and Kroger, for this wonderful example of Team Kentucky Spirit.”

While, Our goal at Kroger is to nourish the human spirit, which means we are called to do more and help improve the lives of those around us,” said Ann Reed, chief of the Kroger Louisville division. The significance of this has never been more evident over the past year. Our industry, like others, stepped up to serve every day throughout the pandemic and our teams were truly heroes. So far, Kroger has vaccinated more than 200,000 Kentucky residents, but we know there is still a lot of work to do. When Governor Bashir asked for support, Kroger was ready and willing to help. Our longtime Kentucky Lottery partners have created a fun and innovative way to encourage more Kentucky residents to get their vaccinations and have fun while doing it. ” Now, what is your take on this?
