Winning is family affair for Vincennes family
A Bruceville retiree and her two grown children stepped forward and claimed their $1 million prize from the recent historic $587.5 million Powerball drawing this afternoon at Hoosier Lottery Headquarters in Indianapolis.
Pat Wilkerson of Bruceville purchased the winning ticket at United PSM at 601 Wheatland Road in Vincennes. She elected to share her winnings with her daughter, Michelle Cummins, and her son, Sean Wilkerson, both of Vincennes. Each party received approximately $333,333 before taxes.
Pat said the decision to split the windfall with her children was a no-brainer.
“I always knew if I won anything big I would split it with my two children,” said Pat Wilkerson. “That’s just a given.”
