After fire destroys family home, couple plays lottery – and wins $1M jackpothttps://t.co/IBhD2fkHSj— WGNMorningNews (@WGNMorningNews) February 15, 2018
Things are looking up for a couple in Canada who lost their home and all their belongings in a wildfire two years ago. Bill Pendergast and his wife just won a million-dollars in the Canadian Lottery and now they look forward to rebuilding their lives.
Bill was visiting his father in Newfoundland and went to the store to get him a soda and picked up the lottery ticket on a whim. The next morning he was shocked to find he was a new millionaire.
The couple says they’ll spend most of the money to “help put the pieces back together,” which includes finishing construction on their new house and taking a family vacation with their five sons. And Bill says there’s one other thing he’d like to get, “I have always wanted a Mustang, and I will finally have one, I’m 100% sure of that.”
