This Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Illinois Lottery has released a new version of its Carolyn Adams Ticket for the Cure instant ticket. 100% of ticket proceeds go to fight breast cancer and support those impacted by the disease in Illinois.
The Illinois Lottery will continue its commitment to the cause by hosting “Pink Pop-Up” events in Chicago on National Mammogram Day. The Lottery will give out free Carolyn Adams Ticket for the Cure tickets at the pop-up events to members of the public who pledge to get a mammogram.
