An Indiana woman’s trip to visit her brother in Chicago was what it took for her to win a million dollars from the Illinois Lottery.
Kathleen Burney bought the winning $300,000,000 Cash Spectacular instant lottery ticket from a 7-11 store at 6801 N. Western Ave., while she was out shopping with her brother. She scratched the ticket while on the way home in her brother’s car. When she saw three pineapples with the word $1 million on them, she screamed so hard that her brother had to stop the car.
With her money Kathleen wants to help family, buy her brother a new car, and set aside an amount for her church. Kathleen is a retired therapist with two children.
