Missouri lottery sets up 'millionaires reunion'

ST. LOUIS | The Missouri Lottery is holding a “millionaires' reunion” to allow those who have struck it rich a chance to meet other lottery millionaires, compare notes and get some financial advice.

This year's event began Monday and continues through Wednesday in St. Louis and St. Charles. It brings together two dozen lottery-made millionaires and their families, who have combined winnings of about $360 million.

They volunteered on Tuesday at the St. Louis Science Center. Several past winners said money can't buy happiness, but it did help them achieve financial peace of mind.
