All Terrain Illinois Lottery Team “Spreads The Word”
Yesterday, the All Terrain Illinois Lottery Team activated at the Thompson Center in downtown Chicago to promote the new “Spread The Word” Instant Ticket.
100% of the profits from the “Spread The Word” Instant Tickets go HIV/AIDS causes in Illinois. Representatives from the Illinois Department of Public Health, and the Step Up. Get Tested. program were also on hand.
Illinois Lottery Superintendent Michael Jones called “Spread the Word” game a perfect example of what the Lottery is all about. “Lotteries exist to fund special causes,” noted Jones. In 2011, there were 1,760 new cases of HIV/AIDS diagnosed in Illinois. In Chicago, more than 20,000 people are currently living with HIV/AIDS.
The new “Spread the Word” $2 instant game will be on sale at more than 8,100 Lottery retailers across the state until supplies are exhausted.
