Donna Gaudaur was very excited about winning first prize in SUPER JINGO Game 906 -- a trip for two via Continental Airlines to anywhere it flies in the continental United States and $500 cash.
"You're kidding. Oh wow, I just love it," she said. "I've been playing for so long, and never won anything like this."
Mrs. Gaudaur, a customer service representative at Springville Insurance, plays every week. "The first thing I do when I get the paper is go to the SUPER JINGO numbers and write them down so I can enter," she said.
Unsure of where she wants to travel, she said the tickets will be used to take a trip with husband, Larry, to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary.
"I'm speechless. You've really made my day," she said.
Other winners are:
Linda Harrison of Springville -- Two-night stay in the SkyDome Hotel, Toronto.
Phyllis Rozewicz of Depew -- Two tickets to five Buffalo Sabres games.
Mary Ches of Buffalo -- Showroom car detail.
John and Kathryn Niedbalski of Hamburg -- Salvatore's gift certificate and show tickets.
Won't Harrison be surprised when she learns she has won second prize, a two-night stay in the SkyDome Hotel, breakfast in the Bistro at the SkyDome and tickets to the SkyDome Tour Experience!
Rozewicz will see Marine Midland Arena for the first time as a result of winning third prize, two tickets to five Buffalo Sabres games. "I'm an all around sports fan, so it is exciting I can see the games in person," she said.
Rozewicz plans to bring her sons to various games. "My older son will be jealous, because he moved to Arizona and won't get to go to a game!" she said jokingly.
Each week, her children help her by giving her the entry forms from their papers. "They laugh at me for filling out the forms every week, but I tell them, be patient, it has to hit sometime. Now it did!" she said.
Retired from Continental Baking, Rozewicz is a seasonal employee for the Association of Handicapped Artists. She said the group handles and processes orders for the works.
"Thank you very much. What a nice surprise," Ches said of winning fourth prize. This marks Ches' first win in SUPER JINGO, which she has been playing since the game began.
She plans on giving the showroom car detail to her daughter Connie. "It will be great to see her car looking like new again," she said.
The Niedbalskis, fifth-place winners, will be treated to a dinner in Salvatore's Italian Gardens in the Town of Lancaster as well as theater tickets.
"This is good. I'm sure we'll enjoy it," Niedbalski said. He said his wife completes the entries each week. "She looks up the numbers and fills them out."
Niedbalski said the couple enjoys both the theater and Salvatore's. "We don't get to either very often, so it should be nice."
