ST. LOUIS BANK EMPLOYEE WINS $100,000 IN POWERBALL
A planned trip to Las Vegas will be even better for a St. Louis (63130*) woman after she won $100,000 in the Aug. 27 Powerball drawing. Karen Goodrich, 43, said she was planning to go to Las Vegas in November, but now the trip will be even better.
"I was thinking about taking out a loan to remodel my house," she said. "Now I won’t need to do that."
Goodrich purchased her winning ticket at The Village Café, 800 Market St. in St. Louis, which is located in the building where she works as a computer room supervisor for Bank of America. She let the computer pick the winning numbers. They were: 24, 31, 36, 42 and 46.
To date, 659 Powerball tickets sold in Missouri have matched all five white-ball numbers drawn to win the $100,000 prize.
