$275,000 lottery win allows Shoreline woman to be present for one of life's biggest moments

Wednesday, December 14, 2016

As one of two winners to split a $550,000 Hit 5 jackpot, a Shoreline woman is now able to make the long trip to Alaska to be present for one of life’s sweetest moments.

The woman won $275,000 from the Hit 5 jackpot drawing on December 5, after purchasing a ticket at River Rock (21125 Smoke Point Blvd., Arlington, WA 98223) on her way home from her daughter’s baby shower.

“It’s my own ‘Miracle on 34 Street,’” said the winner. “I told the universe I wanted to win a couple weeks ago and here I am!”

The winner’s daughter is a soon-to-be mother, and the woman told Washington’s Lottery officials she plans to use her prize money to visit Alaska and spend time with her daughter and grandchild when the baby is born.

The winner also plans to spend her money on a family trip to Hawaii since she’s never been before. “I just want to soak up the sun on the beach,” said the woman.

Proceeds from Washington’s Lottery benefit the Washington Opportunity Pathways Account, providing grants to college students statewide.

Since 1982, Washington’s Lottery has generated more than $3 billion to support important state programs including the Washington Opportunity Pathways Account. Money in the Pathways Account goes toward helping students achieve their higher education dreams and supports early childhood education learning programs.
