Salem Woman Big Winner in Final Night of Mt. Vernon American Legion’s Queen Of Hearts Contest

April 15, 2017

A Salem woman has won more than $107,000 in the Mt. Vernon American Legion’s Queen of Hearts Contest.

Anita Bumgardner and a friend had purchased 40 tickets for the Friday night drawing. It was their first time to buy tickets or attend. Her ticket was drawn from a large concrete mixer which held thousands of tickets purchased for the final night of the contest.

Since there was only one card remaining, once her ticket was drawn Bumgardner knew she was a winner.

Bumgardner plans for the money are to become debt free.

A large crowd gathered at the Mt. Vernon Legion Friday night for the finally of the contest.
