Best Buds Add Cash5 $100,000 Top Prize to Their “Bucket” List of FunBest buds, Janet Simon of Griswold and Sharon Thurow of Sterling have been playing the CT Lottery together as a team for as long as they have been friends—over 20 years. Between the two of them, whatever prize is won is put in a “bucket” and later used for fun, adventure, and the occasional good cause.

Last Saturday night, Janet received a winning numbers text alert from the CT Lottery and thought the Cash5 numbers for May 7 looked pretty familiar. As well they should. The winning numbers, 3-5-13-17-19, were an exact match to the combined “family birthday” numbers she and Sharon had been playing for years. And they had the Cash5 $100,000 prize winning ticket for that date to prove it.

“I called Sharon at 12:30am and told her we won $100,000. Oh my gosh—we were screaming, hugging everyone, and dancing over the phone,” Janet told Lottery officials. “We still can’t believe it. What an awesome feeling! We were always hoping to win.”

In total, 4,611 winning Cash5 tickets were sold statewide on May 7, with prizes ranging in value $2 to $100,000 each. “We were really happy that there was only one top prize (Cash5) ticket sold that night—ours,” said Janet with a smile. “We’re looking forward to hopefully taking a trip this summer to St. Augustine.”

Janet and Sharon’s winning ticket was purchased at Shell Food Mart at 168 W. Town Street, Norwich. For selling the $100,000 prize winning ticket, Shell Food Mart will receive a $1,000 selling bonus from the CT Lottery.
