FAIRFAX, VA (WWBT) - Maria Sabarre, of Fairfax, received quite a Mother’s Day gift.

Sabarre’s husband had eight winning tickets in the Virginia Lottery’s Cash 5 drawing May 12.

He gifted all eight tickets to Sabarre. Each was worth $100,000, giving her an $800,000 windfall on Mother’s Day.

The winning numbers were 3-6-9-19-29. Sabarre’s numbers were chosen at random when her husband picked them up at Safeway in Fairfax.

The money also represent a nice nest egg for Sabarre.

“It’s surreal,” she said. “He gave them to me because I just retired.”
