Perry Hall Couple Celebrate Valentines Day with Big WinTuesday, February 17th, 2009
Wins Hershey’s™ Kisses and Cash™ 10K Top Prize
For 44-year-old Philip Fortuna of Perry Hall, treating his wife, Kim, well for Valentine’s Day has always been a top priority. After all, he proposed to her 17 years ago on the very same day. But when he purchased a Hershey’s Kisses and Cash scratch-off ticket, he had no idea how elated she would actually be. The lucky couple won one of the ticket’s $10,000 top prizes.
“We won ten dollars off the first batch of Hershey’s Kisses and Cash tickets that we bought and then my wife suggested I buy more with the winnings,” said Philip. “Good that I listened to her or we wouldn’t be here.”
The lucky couple told Lottery officials that they are huge Hershey Chocolate fans. Matter of fact, they said they visit the park very frequently. “Hopefully you guys will see us here again when we win the second-chance trip to Hershey Park,” said an excited Kim Fortuna. They lucky winners said they plan to buy new hardwood floors, take a trip, and save some of their prize money for their son’s college fund.
The winning ticket was purchased at 7-11 on Honeygo Blvd. in Baltimore.
