Lottery President & CEO Rebecca Paul Hargrove congratulates Corvette Cash winner Dartesha Tapp.

NASHVILLE - Dartesha Tapp of Antioch, was the lucky grand prize winner of the Tennessee Lottery’s Corvette Cash second-chance drawing. Dartesha, her husband Wayne, and 4 year-old daughter Velvet, were all smiles when they arrived at Lottery headquarters Friday, April 6, to pick up the prize; their choice of a C6 Corvette Convertible or $100,000 cash.

“I just can’t see myself riding around in a Corvette,” laughed Dartesha, who chose the $100,000.

The Grand Prize Corvette Cash second-chance drawing, held April 5, was the final drawing for the popular Corvette Cash instant ticket second-chance game. The grand prize winner was chosen from among the 1,200 grand prize finalists obtained from four previous drawings where lucky players won Corvette prize packs and an entry into the grand prize drawing.

After recently earning her MBA, Dartesha has big plans for her winnings. Besides helping her husband who owns his own automobile repair business, Dartesha plans to keep a long-held promise to her daughter. “I told Velvet that some day I would take her to Disneyland, now we have the chance.” Congratulations to Dartesha and her family!
