Jefferson City Woman Wins $25,000 Top Prize at Schulte's
A Jefferson City woman who stopped at Schulte’s Fresh Foods in Jefferson City for groceries ended up going home with an extra $25,000. Susan Parsons, 44, won the top prize on a Missouri Lottery "In The Bank" Scratchers ticket on June 7.
"I stopped to pick something up for dinner, and I bought Lottery tickets on the way in," Parsons said.
Parsons, who is a claims processor for Infocrossing Healthcare Services Inc. in Jefferson City, scratched the ticket in her car.
"I was shocked," she said.
Parsons said she plans to use her prize winnings to pay bills and take a vacation with her husband and three sons to the diamond mines near Hot Springs, Ark., this August.
"Everybody tells me I need a day at the spa," she said. "I’m up for it!"
"In The Bank," a $2 Scratchers game, went on sale on May 13.
