Kokomo heavy equipment operator scores $1 million
Jeff Vore purchased one Indepdendence Day Millionaire Raffle ticket. That's all it took. His one ticket had six little digits that he hopes will make a big difference in his life: 107460. Together, those six digits, the winning raffle number, add up to $1 million for the heavy equipment operator.
The hardworking Howard County man has no plans to retire any time soon. Vore plans to keep earning his paycheck and invest wisely to make his money work for him in the long run. He's already seeking the advice of a financial advisor.
"I want this to earn money for me," said Vore. "I want to be smart about it and hold onto it. I want this to have made a difference in forty years."
Vore does have one little indulgence on his list of things to do with his winnings. He is going to buy a new motorcycle. He's already visited the Harley Davidson dealership and picked it out. Vore is an avid cycle enthusiast who plans to ride his new cycle in upcoming local benefit rides. Check your raffle ticket and find where the winners were here. There were winners in all 92 counties!
