Westfield resident wins $250,000 in historic Mega Millions® drawing
Angelica Silva of Westfield got a sweet piece of last week’s Mega Millions action, missing Friday’s historic $656 million jackpot by one number. Silva purchased a ticket at Speedway at 519 West Main Street in Westfield that is worth $250,000. The stay-at-home mother of a three-year-old is expecting her second child in June. The Tipton-native was over the moon about the timing of her sudden windfall and is excited to go shopping for baby items. She hasn’t formulated a long-term plan for her winnings yet, but ultimately hopes to use the windfall to benefit her children. “You don’t expect something like this to happen in your life,” said Silva. “It’s overwhelming.” Read more of Angelica's story here.
