Christmas is just around the corner and, for a group of workers at ComEd’s Oak Brook office, it is going to be extra special courtesy of a lottery windfall. Forty-two workers of the utility company are set to share a million dollars they won in the Illinois Lottery.
The group had been playing together for about six years and at least one member was “sure” they will hit a big jackpot one day. Each of them will receive an $18,000 share – barely enough to buy a new compact car, but more than enough to bring extra cheer during the holidays. Each had a different plan for the money they will receive, but all have smiles on their faces.
