Campbell Co., VA - What a day Friday was for local fans of the Washington Redskins!
Two Redskins Cheerleaders were in Campbell County at the Burley's Market on Route 29 Friday as a publicity campaign with the Virginia Lottery.
The lotto commission launched its brand new $5 Redskins scratch off ticket Friday. As a part of the launch they sent Redskins cheerleaders to greet fans at big lotto sale spots throughout the state.
Fans sporting their Redskins gear lined up outside the market Friday and within the first ten minutes, almost 300 scratch offs were sold.
"It's been crazy. The response is overwhelming and we are having a very good turnout and a lot of people are very excited" said Sap Sachdava, the owner of Burley's Market.
Also as a part of the promotion, fans were entered in a raffle to win tickets to an upcoming Redskins game.
