TRIPLE THE MONEY
Lottery winner plans Elvis cruise with winnings
A Clark County woman plans to do some travelling and take her mother on an Elvis-themed cruise after winning $130,000 from the Hoosier Lottery. Donna Hammer of Charlestown, Ind. works for UPS in Louisville where she is part of a Mega Millions® pool. Friday evening she was on her way to meet up with co-workers when she remembered she needed to buy her group’s Mega Millions tickets. She pulled into Hwy 62 Foodmart in Charlestown, Ind. to get the tickets. While she was waiting for the Mega Millions tickets to print she decided to buy herself a Triple the Money Scratch-off. She bought the ticket, put it in her purse and forgot about it. She remembered the ticket a little while later during dinner and scratched it off. She was shocked to see a winning prize amount of $130,000. “I was shaking. I couldn’t believe it,” said Hammer. “I showed the ticket to my husband and he said ‘Sign the back of it right now!’” Click here to read the rest of Donna's story.
