There’s not a lot of good news coming out of the Auto industry these days, but for at least one family in the business, the future is bright.
Thanks to Indiana’s Hoosier Lottery.
A mother and her two daughters, one retired from General Motors and two who work for Delphi in Kokomo, claimed an $11 million Hoosier Lottery prize Monday.
It was the most money Jill Carver, of Kokomo, and daughters Brenda Carver and Ronette Kelley had ever received, and it couldn’t have come at a better time.
“We looked four or five times to make sure we were seeing the right numbers,” Jill Carver told the press, when she turned in the ticket.
“She told me, ‘Are you sitting down?’ and I said, ‘Why, did you win the lottery?'” Brenda Carver said. “‘Well, yeah, she said.'”
The new millionaires said they won’t change. In fact, their plans for the night included a trip to Wal-Mart.
Each of the winners took their first installment Monday — $128,000 annually for the next 30 years.
