TRUCK WINNER: Gov. Justice surprises Marshall County woman with custom-outfitted truck through “Do it for Babydog” Vaccination Sweepstakes


Shannon Cook wins brand-new truck in 5th round of prize giveaways
TRIADELPHIA, WV – Gov. Jim Justice provided yet another West Virginian with a life-changing surprise today, presenting a woman from the town of Glen Dale in Marshall County with the keys to a brand-new, custom-outfitted truck as part of the “Do it for Babydog: Save a life, Change your life” Vaccination Sweepstakes.
Shannon Cook was in the middle of a shopping trip at Cabela’s when Gov. Justice’s voice came over the store’s loudspeaker and asked for Cook to come to the front desk. When she arrived, she was greeted by the Governor and Babydog, who shared the exciting news that Cook was among the lucky West Virginians whose names had been drawn as big winners in the 5th prize drawing of the sweepstakes.
Earlier in the day, Gov. Justice presented a woman from Charleston with the keys to another custom-outfitted truck.

Additionally today, Gov. Justice surprised a nurse at WVU’s Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown with a $1 million cash prize.

On top of these prizes, 47 more West Virginians were announced as “Do it for Babydog” winners today for prizes including two full four-year scholarships to any public institution in the state, five lifetime hunting licenses, five lifetime fishing licenses, five custom hunting rifles, five custom hunting shotguns, and 25 weekend getaways to West Virginia State Parks.
