Lemont, IL— October 23, 2013 — Lemont resident Amanda Fobert is the grand prize winner in the Illinois Lottery’s Anything’s Possible Music Series Sweepstakes. The lucky sweepstakes winner will receive two reserved tickets to all 2014 Live Nation produced music concerts at the First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre in Tinley Park and FirstMerit Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island in Chicago.
“I am going to try to go to every single concert!” said the busy mother of two. Fobert, 32, and her husband George are “huge fans of all types of music.” She entered the on-line sweepstakes at home and was “shocked” to learn that her entry was randomly chosen from more than 12,000 entries.
The sweepstakes was part of the Illinois Lottery’s Anything’s Possible Music Series where the Lottery created unforgettable experiences for lucky fans at select music events this past summer. Prizes included a hotel stay, limousine transportation to the concert, an autographed guitar, a private meeting with the featured artist and $500 spending money.
Residents of Illinois 18 years and older entered the Music Series sweepstakes up to October 15, 2013, to win the grand prize — free concert tickets (2) to all of the 2014 Live Nation produced music concerts at the First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre in Tinley Park and FirstMerit Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island in Chicago.
