Local woman wins $100,000

Sunday, February 28, 2010

Local resident April Corrie recently won $100,000 on a Hoosier Lottery scratch off ticket from the Sunoco Service Station, 939 E. National Ave., Brazil.
An enticing green lottery ticket led to a heap of green for a Brazil resident recently.

On Feb. 23, April Corrie stepped into Sunoco Service Station, 939 E. National Ave., Brazil, before heading to work.

Corrie, who alleges she only plays the lottery once a month, purchase a ticket, a Big Money Double Play to be exact, because its green color managed to grab her attention.

The experience proved to be fruitful as Corrie, who has resided in Brazil her entire life, walked away with $100,000.

As for her plans for the money, Corrie, who has a 2-year-old daughter, says she plans to make good use of it, but doesn't anticipate a great up-kick in extravagance in the lifestyle for her and her family.

"It's not enough to change your whole life," she said in a release following her win, "but it's enough to make it better."
