Co-Workers From Cedar Rapids Company Celebrate As They Claim $1 Million Prize

The Dream Big Team

CLIVE, Iowa - Eleven members of The Dream Big Team, a group of 34 co-workers at a Cedar Rapids company, claimed the group's $1 million prize Monday at Iowa Lottery headquarters in Clive. The prize had been offered in the Iowa Lottery's "Woo Hoo A Million For You Giveaway," a promotion that came about after another big prize in Iowa had expired without being claimed. Laurie Ginder of Anamosa made an entry into the promotion on behalf of her office pool at Collins Aerospace in Cedar Rapids, and the lottery selected that entry as the winner of the $1 million prize in the promotion drawing on June 19.
