Peggy Savoca, of Solon, had a lot of bad things happen to her in the last two years. It had been so bad that she just felt her luck would have to turn soon. She had no idea that her turn in fortune would come courtesy of the lottery.
She had played the lottery daily for a long time, and had asked her daughter to purchase a Multi-State Millions Raffle for her at a Solon Giant Eagle. Fortune finally smiled on her that Nov.1 draw, because the ticket won a cool million dollars.
Peggy is set to receive $710,000 in prize money after deducting state and federal taxes. She will share her windfall with her daughter and is going to make sure her family’s Christmas is special.
