Pennsylvania Dad Wins $50,000 While Shopping for Daughter’s Grad PartyThursday, July 2nd, 2009
When a Pennsylvania man stopped at the store to stock up for his daughter’s high school graduation party, he never expected that he would pick up the ticket to paying for college. The 48-year-old won $50,000 on his Maryland Lottery Platinum Rewards scratch-off. “It couldn’t have come at a better time,” said the general contractor, who has three children in college.
The lucky man scratched the winning ticket in his car outside the store, but he didn’t have time to celebrate. He quickly headed home to get ready for the party, only sharing the good news with his brother.
The winning ticket was purchased at Hess Country Spirits in White Hall. There are two $1,000,000 top prizes remaining on the $20 scratch-off.
