A new lottery ticket being sold in South Carolina features the work of marine wildlife artist and conservationist Guy Harvey.
The South Carolina Education Lottery is debuting the $5 Reel in the Guy Harvey Ticket on Tuesday in lottery retailers all over the state.
The series of four collector tickets feature South Carolina's native red drum fish, sailfish, dolphin fish and loggerhead sea turtle.
"Guy Harvey, with a top prize of $100,000, offers a second-chance opportunity to win a fishing trip with Guy Harvey in Grand Cayman Island and a vacation to The Sanctuary at Kiawah Island Golf Resort," according to the press release.
Harvey is donating proceeds received from the game to state conservation groups for education and marine conservation efforts in South Carolina.
One of the agencies that will get funding is the Coastal Conservation Association of South Carolina.
"South Carolina has been blessed not only with an envied variety of marine resources, but also with people who are passionate about taking care of those resources," said Scott Whitaker, Executive Director of the Coastal Conservation Association of South Carolina. "Having a leader like Guy Harvey enthusiastically support our state's marine conservation and management efforts is tremendously beneficial and we are honored to be a part of this program."
The $5 Guy Harvey instant ticket is available wherever tickets are sold.
