PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – It’s going to be a very good Christmas for one local family.
“We are tremendously excited to join Pa.’s newest millionaire, Kim of Allegheny County, who purchased her $3 million winning scratch-off right here at this Sheetz in Canonsburg,” one representative said.
The Pennsylvania Lottery presented Kim with her $3 million check.
She said she couldn’t believe that she won. She even scanned her ticket twice to make sure.
“I still don’t think it’s real. I get up every day and do not believe it. I think when I get my money, I’ll believe it’s real,” Kim said with a laugh.
“I’m going to buy a house, maybe work a little less, and help some other people out,” she added.
Lottery proceeds benefit Pennsylvania seniors, and they said, since 1972, the lottery has generated almost $34 billion for programs that seniors rely on every day.
