Highland man collects $1 million in record Powerball® run
Larry Chandler of Highland plans to help his mother, start a college fund for his daughter and take his girlfriend to Red Lobster after winning $1 million in last night’s historic $587.5 million Powerball drawing.
What Larry isn’t going to do is quit working. The hard-working 34-year-old Hoosier and union electrician says he’ll be back on the job Monday morning after he meets with a tax advisor and a financial planner.
The winning numbers in last night's drawing were: 5-16-22-23-29 PB: 6.
Larry, who played numbers of his own choosing, matched the first five of those numbers, but not the Powerball number. He was all smiles as he claimed his winnings.
“This doesn’t happen to me!” said Chandler. “It’s crazy. I’ve never won anything.” Read more about Larry and other Hoosier winners in the historic Powerball run here.
