A mother and her 20-year-old college student daughter were recently thrilled and surprised when a family tradition won the daughter a million-dollar lottery jackpot.
With Erin Haggerty at school, her mother, Diane, has been keeping in touch by sending holiday greeting cards – and enclosing a scratch off lottery ticket.
Diane sent her daughter a St. Patrick’s Day card that came with a "Win $1,000 a Week for Life" ticket inside. And sure enough, Erin won a guaranteed $1 million prize.
Even after taxes, the prize is life-changing money and Erin admits she immediately starting thinking about her life after college. And, not surprisingly, one of the first things she did after telling everyone the news was to go shopping. (Coed)
