Louisiana Guest Wins 2009 Chevrolet Traverse LTZ Plus $5,000 Cash in Coushatta’s $50,000 Mother’s Day Car & Cash Giveaway May 10

May 12, 2009

Kinder, LA—On Mother’s Day, Lela Debate thought she heard her name called as the grand prize winner in Coushatta’s $50,000 Mother’s Day car & cash giveaway, but she wasn’t sure––so she asked the guest next to her to repeat the name that was called. Ms. Debate said, “I wasn’t sure at first because I thought this can’t be true, I never win anything, so I asked the man next to me, ‘What name did they call?’ and he said ‘Lela Debate. Is that you?’ and I said ‘Yes’ and he said, ‘Lady, you better get up there and claim your prize before they give your car to someone else!’” She laughed and continued, “I was up all last night thinking about it. I couldn’t sleep. It’s true … I really won! This is one of the biggest thrills of my life. Coushatta is the best casino in Louisiana. We’ve been to them all, and Coushatta is the best!”

Ms. Debate of Carencro, Louisiana, won a 2009 Chevrolet Traverse LTZ plus $5,000 cash in Coushatta’s $50,000 Mother’s Day car & cash giveaway. The car is valued at $40,000, and with the added cash prize, her win is valued at $45,000. The afternoon’s prizes included various cash amounts totaling $5,000, and the $45,000 grand prize package. The giveaway was “for moms only” and only female members of Coushatta’s Advantage Players Club were eligible to win. A similar giveaway will be held on Father’s Day for the club’s male members, with a truck and boat grand prize package.
