Most of us plan to give away some of our big win. And most winners do give some to family and charity.
But Allan and Violet Large went far beyond what most of would do.
The couple was thrust into the media spotlight in July 2010 after claiming an $11.2-million cheque from a 6-49 lottery draw. They became celebrities when it became public they had given about $11 million to family, friends and a long list of charities.
Allan and Violet will receive the the community service award on Monday from the Rotary Club of Truro.
How much of a big lottery win could you give away?
