Mechanicsville Resident Wins Cruise Vacation
On Valentine’s Day, Bryan Caperones won $20 on a scratch-off and headed into his favorite store to collect his winnings. Little did Bryan know that his win would turn into a much sweeter deal when he decided to spend his $20 on four Cruise for Cash tickets. He planned on giving the tickets to his wife to scratch, but he couldn’t wait that long and decided to scratch them himself. The first ticket he scratched was a $25 winner, but it was the third ticket that revealed a Royal Caribbean® cruise vacation.
Later that evening, he surprised his wife when he put the winning ticket in the bag with her Valentine’s Day present. Anxious to share their good fortune, Bryan told her where to find the winning ticket. “Reach to the bottom of the bag and pull it out,” he instructed. “She was pretty excited.” The happy couple will celebrate their fifth wedding anniversary on June 3rd. They already have plans to go to Jamaica, but look forward to taking their Royal Caribbean® cruise in November. The winning ticket was purchased at Fred’s Liquors, located at 30075 Three Notch Rd. in Charlotte Hall.
