This is a nice change of pace and the hospital can certainly use the money. The lottery ticket was in an envelope and when the hospital checked the numbers it was worth 10k.
The donor identity is a mystery as the ticket was unsigned so the hospital can cash it in whenever they want. BD
(Aug. 22) -- Many lottery winners choose to splash their prize money on fast cars or swanky vacations. But one anonymous Kansas Lottery player recently decided they'd spend their $10,000 winnings on a far worthier cause: funding their local hospital. Susan Concannon, executive director of the Mitchell County Regional Medical Foundation in Beloit (pop. 4,000), discovered the surprise gift when she was opening her mail late last month. "We have a PO Box that I visit every day, and hope that someone sends me some money," Susan Concannon told local TV station KAKE . "It was a very nondescript envelope that was in the P.O. Box on July 28th, no return address."
