Hometown Hero – Teen Plans To Give Most Of His Half Million Lottery Win To Parents


The Ingham County teen who just won $500,000 in an instant lottery game won’t be keeping most of his money. The anonymous 19-year-old tells state lottery officials he plans to invest $5,000 of his prize and then give the rest to his parents.

“My parents have done so much for my sister and me,” he says in a lottery bureau release. “Helping them takes a big weight off of their shoulders and mine.”

The teen says he initially thought people were playing a trick on him, “until I saw how excited they were about the ticket.” And we’re pretty sure his parents will be more excited when he shares the wealth.
