Mom’s Day: Connecticut Mother of Four Plays Family Birthdays, Wins $100,000

Ever since Dawn and Tim Rose of Southington, Connecticut, welcomed the arrival of twin daughters to their growing family, Dawn has played a selection of  the state’s Cash5 numbers comprised of family birthdays.
It’s something a lot of folks do. Play birthdays. [That’s why the numbers 1-31 are more popular and played more often than numbers above 31]

While making a Cash5 Advance Action purchase, Dawn rummaged through her purse for an earlier unchecked Cash5 ticket and handed it to the clerk.

I was completely unaware until I heard the terminal say, “Congratulations.’

I thought maybe I won $100.  When the clerk told me I won $100,000I was stunned.  I had to go to my car to calm down and gather my thoughts before I could drive home, Dawn said.

Dawn, a special education paraprofessional at Thalberg Elementary School in Southington, collected a check for $68,300 (prize value after taxes).

We’re thinking about taking a family vacation to Aruba.  We’re also going to put money away for the kids’ college, Dawn said.

Awesome story.
