Dec. 4 (UPI) — A Maryland woman whose father sent her to the store for a head of cabbage ended up with plenty of green — $ 225,000 from a scratch-off lottery ticket.
Vanessa Ward told Virginia Lottery officials her father asked her to pick up a head of cabbage, so she stopped by the Giant Food Store in Groveton and decided to buy a Win a Spin scratch-off ticket while she was there.
The ticket earned Ward the top prize: A chance to spin the wheel at Virginia Lottery headquarters and win between $ 100,000 and $ 500,000.
Ward’s spin earned her a $ 225,000 prize.
She said she plans to put the money toward her retirement and possibly take a trip to Disney World.
