Florissant Family Finds $30,000 Money Bag
A Florissant woman gave her husband a big gift after she uncovered a $30,000 prize on a Missouri Lottery "Triple Money Bags" Scratchers ticket on May 31. Leslee Gregory said she gave the ticket to her husband, Tim, 35, so he could buy a new car and help him pay for expenses to cut a record.
"I always wanted to give him a (winning) Scratchers, so he could go buy himself a car and maybe finish his record deal," said Gregory.
"He’s been waiting for this time," she said. "He knew it was going to happen. He kept telling me it was going to happen one day - he was right."
Leslee Gregory bought the winning ticket at Handy Pantry, 1925 Washington St. in Florissant.
"Triple Money Bags," a $2 Scratchers game, officially started April 22.
