If You Won $100,000 Would You Pass Out? Virginia Player Almost Does (Bless Her Heart)


When Shirley Gagliardi walked into the Virginia Lottery’s customer service center in Hampton holding a 10X the Money ticket, she had just one request: “Take this ticket before I pass out!”

She had good reason.

The ticket in her hand was a top-prize winner worth $100,000.

You might pass out too. I know I would.

Gagliardi, who is 87 years young, bought the winning ticket in Norfolk, Virginia. She said she picked 10X the Money because she liked the colors of the ticket.

She said she loves the fun of playing the Lottery. When asked what she intends to do with her winnings, Ms. Gagliardi said it “won’t be anything fancy.”
