$100,000 CROSSWORD TRIPLER win in Kelvington
Kelvington local Mona Belanko was at the Red Apple Store at 114 Main St. on July 26 when she picked up a CROSSWORD TRIPLER Zing ticket. When she returned home and scratched her ticket later that day, she discovered that decision made her $100,000 richer.
At first, she thought she won $10,000 – but when she went back to the same store and handed her ticket to the cashier, she received a sweet surprise.
“I gave it to the cashier to check on their machine and said ‘I think it's for $10,000,’” recalled Belanko. “But then they told me I won $100,000!”
“I didn't know what to think. I just stood there and cried a bit,” Belanko laughed. “I think they were more excited than I was. I was in total shock.”
Belanko then called her daughter, who was just as surprised when she realized her mom wasn’t joking.
When it comes to her recent windfall, Belanko already has a few plans for how to use it.
“I'm going to get the roof fixed, pay some bills and help the kids out.”
