Gary man hits $100,000 in East Chicago!

If you want to know what it feels like to win $100,000, ask Richard Abram of Gary. Richard is a heating and cooling specialist with the East Chicago Housing Authority.  He also purchased a $100,000 winning Scratch-off at Broadway Food Shop at 1605 Broadway in East Chicago last week.  

“Thing is, people don’t think these types of big tickets are in this area,” said Richard. “My thing is, I won $1,000 here – twice – already!”

Richard said he plans to basically give his winnings to his wife, Alicia.  All he wants out of it is a car. The couple have been sharing one car for a couple years. Read more about the prizes available on the Wining in Spades Scratch-off here.
