MARGATE – New Jersey’s lucky lottery winners did their “Happy” dance in front of Lucy the Elephant on Thursday, June 5 to celebrate their winnings and help the New Jersey Lottery promote its games of chance.

Thirty New Jersey Lottery winners, including Nadina Fornia of Egg Harbor City, who won the lottery three times, traveled from city to city visiting New Jersey’s iconic landmarks to dance before the cameras filming three, 30-second television commercials. They danced their happy dance to Pharrell Williams’ hit anthem, “Happy.”

The big winner on set was Timothy Boulous of Seabright, who won the million-dollar lottery.

Dave Scott of Oaklyn danced because he won $100, while Valerie and Darrell Stewart of Willingboro sat out take one and take two to enjoy a little beachfront sunshine peeking through the breaking clouds. They became thousandaires thanks to a NJ Lottery scratch-off game.

But, doing the most lively dance of all was Eleise Queensbury, also of Oaklyn, who won $10 playing the NJ Lottery.

The film crew and winners also visited the Stone Pony in Asbury Park, downtown Morristown and the Absecon Lighthouse in Atlantic City before heading off to the beach in Ocean City.
