DU QUOIN, Ill. – Do you feel lucky today? Black Diamond Harley-Davidson in Marion, Ill., is one of Illinois Lottery’s newest retailers -- and the only Harley-Davidson dealership in the nation to offer it.

The dealership is donating a portion of every Illinois Lottery ticket sold at the 2013 Du Quoin State Fair to the Combined Veterans Association.

The Combined Veterans Association supports many local organizations, including the Marion VA Medical Center, Illinois Veterans Home in Anna, The Women’s Center, Boys and Girls Club of Carbondale, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, scholarships for children of armed service members. At Christmas, the groups buy gifts for residents of the VA Medical Center and Women’s Center and run the annual Toys for Tots toy drive. They also help veterans.
