The Illinois Lottery is launching its Police Memorial “Wild Cherry” Instant Ticket. This ticket provides 100% of its proceeds to build and maintain police memorials, hold commemorations, and provide scholarships and assistance for families of fallen officers or officers injured on the job. Funds can also be used to purchase or replace bulletproof vests in the line of duty.
The Police Memorial “Wild Cherry” Instant Ticket costs $2, and players can win up to $20,000. All the profits from the ticket will be divided evenly amongst these three foundations:
- The Chicago Police Memorial Foundation,
- The Illinois Police Officers Memorial Committee, and
- The Illinois State Police Memorial Park Fund.
We hope you consider purchasing this ticket and encourage others to do the same.

Thank you for your support of our organization as we work continue to support our officers.
