Mechanicsville Plumber is Flush After $50,000 Bonus Match 5 Win

Tuesday, May 24th, 2011

An overjoyed Mechanicsville man arrived at Lottery Headquarters this afternoon with his family in tow to claim his $50,000 Bonus Match 5 prize. The 77-year-old retired plumber was on a routine trip to the store last week when he decided to buy a few Lottery tickets. While watching television, he saw the numbers from his Quick Pick ticket come up making him $50,000 richer.

“I usually never play the Lottery on Thursdays,” said the father-of-four with a smile. “Thank goodness I did. Maybe Thursday will be a regular play day for me now.” The happy winner intends to use a portion of his prize money to take his wife to the Caribbean. He also plans to buy a new family car and share his good fortune with his children and grandchildren.  The winning Bonus Match 5 ticket was purchased at McKay’s Food and Drug, located on 37670 Mohawk Dr. in Saint Mary’s County.
