YORKTOWN, Va. (WWBT) - When Phyllis Houston plugged in her old Christmas lights, the broken strand of polished bulbs led to a trip to Home Depot.
While the yearly trip to the hardware store is tedious for some, it was life-changing for Houston.
On her way home, Houston bought a Cash 5 lottery ticket at the Wawa on 2610 George Washington Memorial Parkway.
One of her tickets matched all five numbers, winning her the $171,685 jackpot.
“I couldn’t believe it,” Houston said. “It just feels wonderful!”
Houston, who is retired, said she has no plans for her winnings.
