Women working at a sub-commission on publicity and education in the Central Highlands province of Kon Tum last week received a big surprise as a gift for International Women’s Day.
Their boss, Lê Thị Kim Đơn, head of the sub-commission, bought 40 lottery tickets issued by Bình Định Province’s Lottery Company for 14 female officers.
Women’s day was complete when the results were announced at the end of the day.
18 out of the 40 tickets won prizes, worth a total of VNĐ4.8 billion (US$208,700).
Đơn received a gift for herself by nabbing four winning tickets, worth VNĐ200 million ($8,700).
From now on, we may see lottery tickets running quickly ‘out of stock’ on special occasions. — VNS
