A retired Greece woman is $1,000,000 richer after buying a powerball ticket last month.
Michele Dudley, 59, bought the ticket at the West Ridge Road Wegmans August 6th. She says she rarely plays the lottery and decided to buy a ticket because the jackpot was so high.
Dudley put the ticket on her counter and didn't check it for more than a week after being away on a camping trip. She says she already has plans for what she want's to do with the money.
"I think the first thing we are going to do is take my mom out for a whole day shopping and treat her like a queen and let her get whatever she wants and then I think we will go someplace romantic," said Dudley.
Dudley will get her money in one lump sum totalling more than $660,000 after taxes.
