WyoLotto fans win a trip to San Diego to cheer on the Pokes

A lucky couple from Bar Nunn, Wyo. will be trading their snow boots for flip-flops when they fly to San Diego thanks to WyoLotto’sTM Gold Coast Getaway.

Winners Kimberly Hawkes and her husband, Gary, will be travelling to sunny San Diego to see the Pokes take on the San Diego State Aztecs when the teams play on January 31. “I never win anything, so I certainly didn’t expect to win. I love San Diego, so I decided to give it a try,” Kimberly Hawkes said. With a trip to California in her future, it seems like her luck has finally changed.

WyoLotto’s Gold Coast Getaway was a social media giveaway that took place from December 26 – January 9 and offered the lucky winners a trip to San Diego to watch the UW Cowboys play the San Diego State Aztecs. The prize package included tickets to the game, roundtrip airfare, accommodations, and UW gear.

Hawkes and her family love to support the Pokes, but they also love the city of San Diego. “You get the best of both worlds, the ocean on one side and the mountains on the other,” she said.

Hawkes is a school bus driver in Natrona County where she lives with her husband and their two children, Allison and Scott. Hawkes mentioned she plans to swap out her school bus for a rented Mustang and take a break from navigating snowy roads. During their time in San Diego, the couple plans to go whale watching and explore the scenery while enjoying the warm weather.
