WETHERSFIELD MAN RINGS IN $25,000 IN TIME FOR WEDDING
September 25, 2016
It’s been a wonderful couple of months for James Stavola Jr. of Wethersfield. In March, Stavola Jr. became engaged to his longtime girlfriend. He celebrated his birthday and received the best present the following day when he welcomed a newborn baby girl. To add to the amazing events, Stavola Jr. cashed in $25,000 on a “$250,000 Cashword 2” instant ticket! 

The happy winner was getting his morning coffee before work and decided to buy a ticket to play afterwards. Stavola Jr. couldn’t believe it when he finished playing. “I scanned it three times and shook his [the clerk’s] hand,” he said while laughing. 

Stavola Jr. celebrated with his fiancé while he met with Lottery officials, “This is wedding money!” The couple has been together for 5 years and look forward to using their new winnings for a destination wedding. When asked to sum up his winning experience, an excited Stavola Jr. simply responded with a smile and said, “Disbelief.” 

For selling the winning ticket, Krauszer’s Food Store located on 357 Cromwell Avenue will receive a $250 check from the CT Lottery.
