Celebrations Continue for Weston Resident with $50,000 Powerball® Win
Coincidence is one way to describe Tiffany Donovan’s $50,000 win on Powerball
drawn on July 27, 2016. Donovan of Weston, had been celebrating her 16th anniversary when her friend suggested to play Powerball. Following the advice, Donovan decided to buy “Quick Pick” tickets while she ran errands.
After the drawing, Donovan checked her numbers online and couldn’t believe what she saw. “My heart started to pound a little—I called him [Donovan’s husband] over and asked ‘Did we win?’”. After double and triple checking, both Donovan and her husband realized their luck, “I think we won $50,000!”
The winning numbers drawn on July 27th were ---- 10 – 47 – 50 – 65 – 68 – Powerball: 24 ---- with Donovan matching 4 numbers and the Powerball.
This Powerball win comes at an interesting time for the Donovans as they will soon fly to England for a relative’s birthday. The Donovans actually had their honeymoon in England and now 16 years later, days after their celebration, they are headed back across the pond.
The series of coincidental events continued as Donovan told Lottery officials, “Today is my Mother-in-law’s birthday,” while claiming her prize. Call it chance and luck, but Donovan was nevertheless thankful and full of joy as she left the CT Lottery headquarters in Rocky Hill to celebrate with her family.
Donovan’s winning ticket was sold at Weston Hardware & Houseware located on 190 Weston Road in Weston.
