Anchorage Residents Win Tickets to the Super Bowl
Man is selected out of 17 million other card holders
An Anchorage couple is headed to the Super Bowl next week.
Randy Eledge’s Bank of America Visa card transaction, at the Los Arcos restaurant on east Dowling, was picked out of 17 million other cardholders.
Eledge, who was visiting family in Texas at the time, called his favorite waiter Jesse Gallo before anyone else. “He was asking me if I know anything about a raffle or lottery for Super Bowl tickets,” said Gallo. "I told him I didn't know anything. I told him to research it, 'cause it could be a scam.”
He did, and it wasn’t.
His winnings include airfare, hotel (all expenses paid), dinner with a NFL player and the opportunity participate in the coin toss.
The Eledges leave February 1 for the Super Bowl, which will take place just four days later.
