Lottery Announces Games to Aid Kansas Veterans

By  | 

New lottery games are heading to retailers this week in advance of Veterans Day. The new tickets, a $2 Betty Boop and $1 Military Mascots, will benefit Kansas veterans programs and help with construction of additional space at the Museum of the Kansas National Guard.

Maj. Gen. Tod Bunting, state adjutant general, said Thursday that 30 percent of the proceeds from the ticket sales will go to the museum, which is at Forbes Field south of Topeka. Additional funds go to veterans scholarship programs and supporting the Kansas Commission on Veterans Affairs, which operates the Veterans' Home in Winfield, the Soldiers' Home at Dodge City and the Veterans' Cemetery System.
