MILTON (CBS) – A Milton man is $10 million richer after he hit the jackpot on a scratch ticket.
Eric Cherry, who works as a fireman at a power plant, was running errands last week when he bought his ticket. He didn’t know which ticket he wanted to play so he let the owner at Tedeschi’s pick. The ticket selected was the “Billion Dollar Bonanza.”
Cherry will collect $330,000 after taxes for the next 20 years. He says that he and his wife, who works as a nurse, will keep their jobs and stay in their current home.
They plan to spend the money on family vacations.
