WESTON, Conn. — Tiffany Donovan of Weston was celebrating her 16th wedding anniversary, when a friend suggested she play Powerball to mark the occasion.
Following that advice, Donovan decided to buy “Quick Pick” tickets at at Weston Hardware & Houseware at 190 Weston Road in Weston while she ran errands.
After the drawing on July 27, Donovan checked her numbers online and couldn’t believe what she saw.
“My heart started to pound a little—I called him [Donovan’s husband] over and asked, ‘Did we win?’”
After double- and triple-checking, both Donovan and her husband realized their luck, “I think we won $50,000!”
The winning numbers drawn on July 27th were: 10, 47, 50, 65, 68 with a Powerball of 24. Donovan matched four of the numbers and the Powerball.
This Powerball win comes at a fun time for the Donovans because they will soon fly to England for a relative’s birthday.
The Donovans actually had their honeymoon in England and now 16 years later, days after their celebration, they are headed back across the pond.
