The Illinois Lottery is launching its Police Memorial “Diamonds and Gold” 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 those officers who have been injured on the job. Funds also can be used to purchase or replace bulletproof vests to be used in the line of duty.
The Police Memorial “Diamonds and Gold” 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:
- Chicago Police Memorial Fund
- Illinois Police Committee Fund
- Illinois State Police Heritage Foundation
We hope you will consider purchasing this ticket and encouraging others to do the same.
