On Friday, September 27, 2019, officials from the Pennsylvania Lottery and Sheetz presented a commemorative check to the winner of a recent $500,000 Cash 5 jackpot. The check presentation was held at Sheetz, 768 Wayne Ave., Indiana, Indiana County where the jackpot-winning ticket was sold. The store receives a $500 bonus for selling the big winner.
The winner, Caroline L. of York County, bought the winning ticket while she was visiting her daughter, a freshman at Indiana University of Pennsylvania.
“I normally don’t play Cash 5, I like the Match 6, but that day I thought oh why not,” said Caroline. She didn’t watch the drawing, instead, she traveled home to York County, went grocery shopping and waited to check her ticket later at home.
“I called my daughter; I said ‘This can’t be real! I think I’m dreaming!’” said Caroline, who said her daughter was in shock as well. “I guess I’m not dreaming. I just don’t believe this!”
Caroline plans to use some of the money to help pay for her daughter’s tuition and she said she will use the rest to pay some bills.
