Lottery Luck Strikes FDL Twice Wednesday

Wednesday night was a good one for lottery players in Fond du Lac. A woman who bought a Powerball ticket at Korneli’s on the Miracle Mile won $250,000. “She actually just happens to be one of one our regulars at our North Fond du Lac store that came over here. Started coming over here to purchase her tickets a couple times a week when it gets high and she just got lucky yesterday.  She’s the nicest lady in the world.” Korneli’s Manager Amy Karow says the story doesn’t end there. The winner was purchasing the ticket for a group of employees that work at Saputo Cheese. She says, “One of her other girls in the group came in today to let us know it was her and I gave her a big hug and said congratulations. Kind of a feel good story because you know they are closing down soon.” Meanwhile just down the road at the Pick ‘n Save on Pioneer Road a Badger 5 ticket was sold that entitles the winner to half of a $104,000 jackpot. The other winner for that jackpot bought theirs in Woodruff.
