95-Year-Old Grandmother Lands $30,000 Lottery Prize
Ursula McCafferty of North Canaan might be one of the luckiest grandmothers around as she won $30,000 on “3X The Cash 6th Edition”. Retired McCafferty has enjoyed much of her free time with family and enjoys going to play scratch games because she’s “… a people person and my cat doesn’t give me much attention,” McCafferty laughed with Lottery officials.
When talking about her big win, McCafferty said, “I didn’t believe it—I didn’t think it was real. I called her [McCafferty’s daughter] and left a message saying ‘I don’t know what to do!’” They soon realized a trip down to CT Lottery headquarters in Rocky Hill was the next step in claiming the top prize.
As a grandmother to twelve grandchildren, McCafferty plans to share her winnings with family and treat herself to something new. “I’ll give everyone a little bit and get a decent phone—something where you can actually see pictures,” McCafferty said with a beaming smile. For selling the winning ticket, Super Stop and Shop #677 located on 11 East Main Street Route 44 in North Canaan will receive a $300 check from the CT Lottery.
