An Annandale couple celebrate 61 years of marriage with a $50,000 lottery win.
Patrick and Janice Ryan purchased a $50,000 winning Lottery ticket at Schmidty’s Annandale on Aug. 20—the day of their 61st wedding anniversary. Patrick scratched the $13 Million Cash Explosion II ticket that day, but didn’t think it was a winner.
A couple of days later Janice noticed that part of the ticket hadn’t been scratched off—revealing the ultimate anniversary gift—$50,000!
“It was a wonderful surprise,” said Janice. “We still don’t believe it!”
Schmidty’s Annandale is located at 215 Elm Ave. W.in Annandale.
