Lake County man wins $50,000 Hoosier Lottery prize – twice!
Ralph Frazee of Cedar Lake has done something very few people have done. He just claimed his second $50,000 Lucky 5prize. Frazee matched all five digits in the March 9 midday drawing. He also claimed a $50,000 prize from a Lucky 5 midday drawing less than two years ago, in May 2010. Both wins were on a Friday and both times he spent a long, anxious weekend waiting to claim his prize at Hoosier Lottery Headquarters. Ralph and his wife Berthyne, or Bert, as she is known, claimed Ralph’s prize yesterday. With their winnings, the couple plans to continue with some home renovation that they started with funds from their first win. This time, new kitchen cabinets are at the top of the list. “We’ve been there about 43 years. It’s time for a new kitchen,” said Bert Frazee. Read more of Ralph and Bert's story here.
