A lot people pool their money together and buy lottery tickets in hopes of hitting it big! A group of teachers at Case Elementary School in Cleveland have been doing it for 15 years. Every month they pitch in $10 in hopes of hitting it big, and they finally did!
The Case teachers won $250,000 in the November 1 Mega Millions drawing! Teacher Tom Shannon bought the ticket for the group at the Corner Beverage in Euclid. He says they have won a buck or two here and there, but this is the first big win!
After taxes each teacher will get $12,321.00!
What will they buy? One has plans to pay for a wedding, another teacher has travel plans and another is getting a new tattoo.
Congratulations! It looks like 12 grand will make for a fun Thanksgiving break for these great teachers!
