Kansas City Postal Supervisor Wins $100,000 Powerball Prize
A supervisor for the Kansas City post office received a large prize when a play on her Powerball ticket for the March 2 drawing turned out to be worth $100,000. Guadalupe "Lupe" Stevens, 49, of Kansas City (64124*) said she plans to buy some savings bonds and pay off her car loan with the prize money.
"I’ll probably take a vacation in the summer," she said.
Stevens purchased her winning ticket at 7-Eleven, 3201 Independence in Kansas City. She and her husband selected the winning numbers at random. They were: 3, 10, 18, 46, 48.
To date, 729 tickets worth $100,000 have been sold in Missouri since the Powerball game started in April 1992.
