New Milford Dad Celebrates Life-Changing $100,000 Prize Win
There are many ways to celebrate a birthday, but Joseph Ciraolo of New Milford, a very happily married, proud father of two, found just the ticket to do it up right—a $100,000 prize winning “Jumbo Bucks
” instant game ticket, that is!
“I scratched the ticket and literally stopped in my tracks when I saw I won $100,000. I high fived the dude behind the counter and quickly left the store,” said Ciraolo with a laugh. “I went straight home and told my wife, ‘We just changed our life!’ Then I showed her the ticket. She just cried.”
Ciraolo, who will be 31 years old tomorrow, is looking forward to paying off bills with the prize money and setting up a college fund for his children. “And, when my kids turn 5, there will be money to go to Disneyland, too.”
Ciraolo’s top prize winning Jumbo Bucks ticket was purchased at Mir Enterprises at 28 Danbury Road in New Milford. For selling the ticket, Mir Enterprises will receive a $1,000 check from the CT Lottery.
