Plainville Woman Grabs $200,000 Powerball Prize
Plainville resident, Sharon Gallo, had the unexpected good fortune of purchasing a Powerball
“Quick Pick” ticket at Food Bag, located at 502 Cedar Street in Newington, and successfully matched the first five numbers drawn on Nov. 23, 2011.
The winning numbers drawn on that date were 4 – 30 – 35 – 57 – 59. Gallo missed having the Powerball number of 25. The Power Play multiplier was 2.
The “Match 5” prize earned Gallo an impressive check for $200,000 ($136,600 after taxes). For selling Gallo the winning ticket, Food Bag will receive a $2,000 bonus check from the CT Lottery.
Nationwide, 575,976 winning Powerball tickets were purchased on that date; 11,445 were winning tickets sold here in Connecticut.
