Lottery-winning parents excited to help kids
Brenda and Jeff Gallmeyer of Roanoke, Ind., were so happy they were almost at a loss for words as they claimed a $125,000 Scratch-off prize at Hoosier Lottery Headquarters Wednesday. The lucky winners were thrilled -- not to be able to buy stuff or take a lavish vacation -- but for the peace of mind that comes from being able to help their children get a head start in their own lives. “We’re excited for the sake of our kids,” said Brenda Gallmeyer. “It’s an unexpected gift, a true blessing.” The Gallmeyers are lifelong Hoosiers. Brenda works for a small publishing company and Jeff is an engineer. They have two children in college and one in high school who also plans to go to college. “This gives us a little breathing room. It will help our kids graduate from college without debt,” said Gallmeyer. Read more about Brenda's big Fat Wallet win here.
