$50,000 SCRATCH WINNER PLANS TO USE PRIZE TO "PAY IT FORWARD"
June 4, 2016

When a man from Camas realized he’d just won $50,000 playing “Cash Spectacular” Scratchhe knew exactly how he wanted to spend his money.

The winner, who purchased the ticket at the Camas Food Mart (501 NE 3rd Avenue) plans to “pay it forward” and help out his community. He told Lottery officials he frequently helps out the elderly in his community by fixing wheelchairs, lawn mowers and other daily household items.

“I work with a lot of people who don’t have very much money,” the winner said. “They live on next to nothing. I have a great big heart and I like to give back.”

The winner does plan to save a bit of his prize for himself, though. He told Lottery officials he’s going to need to buy a new car, as his currently has too many miles on it. He said he has his eye on a Volkswagen.

Proceeds from Washington’s Lottery benefit the Washington Opportunity Pathways Account, providing grants to college students statewide. To learn more about Washington’s Lottery, its beneficiaries and to review all up-to-date winning numbers, please visit www.walottery.com.
