Arizona Lottery Retailer Donates Sales Incentive to Charity

in Lottery
With Arizona Lottery's sale of last week's $410M winning Mega Millions ticket, Circle K, Arizona Lottery's single largest retailer, received a sales bonus of $50K.  As we were preparing to move the bonus forward and looking at opportunities to promote the win for Circle K, we took the chance and asked Circle K if they would be willing to donate the prize to UCP of Central Arizona.  UCP is Circle K's primary non-profit partner and we have supported efforts with Circle K and UCP in the past. 
In these times, organizations like UCP are struggling maintaining donations that are the lifeblood of their ability to serve our community.  We saw this as a way to do even more good for our community and Circle K agreed.  Now obviously Circle K has a little different resources than many of our retail partners, but we saw this as a lesson in not being afraid to ask for something that could be good for everyone involved.
$50K will have a tremendous impact for UCP and we were happy to play a small part in the effort!!
The $410M Mega Millions Jackpot is a big win for more than just one lucky Arizona Lottery player in #Glendale. Thanks to Circle K's generous donation of their $50k bonus check for selling the lucky ticket, United Cerebral Palsy will be able to continue to make life without limits possible for people with disabilities. The Arizona Lottery is proud to partner with retailers like Circle K to strengthen our communities.
