Harwinton Woman is "Tickled Pink" by $20,000 Top Prize WinKeitha Pollutro of Harwinton told Lottery officials that she doesn't
play the Lottery very often, but while shopping today at the Daily Mart
in Harwinton, she stopped and looked at all the scratch tickets and
thought to herself, "Wouldn't it be great if I won $50?"
first, Keitha couldn't decide which ticket to buy. After some
deliberation, she chose the "20X Cash 4th Edition ticket," scratched it,
and was shocked to discover she won one of the game's top prizes --
$20,000. "When I scratched the ticket and saw I won, I was so tickled
pink, I started crying," Keitha told Lottery officials through teary
"I didn't even go back inside to check my ticket. I just
called my fiance, told him that I won, and then came straight to Lottery
headquarters," Keitha said.
Keitha, who expressed such
gratitude for this good fortune, plans to put her prize money to good
use. "I'll pay some bills, but I really want to help my son with
college. I also want to give some money to my ex-mother-in-law. Since
my mother died, she's always been like a mother to me, so I'd like to
help her, too."
