Finally…an honest lottery winner!
Single Mother Wins $66 Million Jackpot
Rather than telling the media she planned to keep working, pay off debts and all that common chatter…she told the truth and let everyone know she plans to BALL OUT. Via MailOnline:
A 24-year-old single mother in Mt Clemens, Michigan has become America’s newest millionaire after turning in her winning $66million lottery ticket.
On Thursday, Kelsey Zachow spoke about her win at a press conference, and later posed with her check and 7-month-old baby boy Benjamin.
At the press conference, Zachow talked about how she plans to spend her winnings and how she went more than a week without knowing about the valuable Mega Millions lottery ticket tucked in her purse.
Zachow says she has been buying lottery tickets two times a week for the past five years, spending an estimated $10,000 on tickets.
She has since quit her two jobs as a bartender and medical assistant, which she previously worked to support her son and also her boyfriend and his 5-year-old daughter Evelyn.
[Her boyfriend] has been laid off from his job in construction for about a year.
Zachow says she first plans to spend her money buying a new SUV, perhaps a Jeep, and then a electric blue Mustang GTR convertible with dual exhaust and leather seats.
She also wants to but the house of her dreams in the St. Clair area. Some place with acreage where she might one day be able to open a no-kill animal shelter.
From there, she plans to treat herself to vacations in Europe, the Caribbean and Ireland – where most of her boyfriend’s family are from.
The money will also go to pay the college tuition for her son, boyfriend’s daughter, and her 2-year-old little brother Gus Schmidlin.
Zachow’s winnings were the largest ever won by a Michigan lottery player on a Friday the 13th.
With $66 million in the bank, we bet it’s safe to say her unemployed boyfriend/babydaddy will make an honest woman out of her soon!
