Promised lottery gift going undelivered

Posted: Thursday, April 23, 2009

ANCHORAGE - The winner of the state's first big lottery has not donated $100,000 - as he said he would - to an Anchorage charity the lottery was intended to benefit.

Officials with Standing Together Against Rape say they haven't heard from Alec Ahsoak, a convicted sex offender who won the $500,000 jackpot in January.

Ahsoak's winnings totaled $350,000 after taxes.

Nancy Haag, STAR's executive director, says the group is looking ahead and not dwelling on Ahsoak's promise.
