29 Missouri Lottery-made millionaires who have won a total of more than $431-Million travel to Jefferson City to take part in an event that sees past winners giving their time to help the needy. Michael Lang of St. Peters was part of a group of state workers in the St. Louis area whose lives changed earlier this year with the $224-Million winning ticket in the April 12th Powerball drawing. He joined 28 other millionaires at the Samaritan Center – a Jefferson City service center providing food and clothing to the needy. And, he was happy to help out. Lang says he’s happy to help those in need. This was the 20th annual Missouri Lottery Millionaires Reunion. Each year, the Missouri Lottery invites past winners to converge on a location, somewhere in the state, to contribute their time to the less fortunate. The Lottery’s Gary Gonder says that while the Reunion has been going on for twenty years, it was only in recent years that it became a philanthropic event.
