Now that’s one nice graduation gift! Anissa Dellaripa, 22, of South Windsor, Connecticut, graduated in June from college. Her dad, who had a habit of buying her $1.00 Connecticut scratch off lottery tickets for fun, gave her one for graduating. Well, Anissa won alright: she won the top prize of $2,000 a month for life!
Anissa’s dad gave her the ticket and said, “Here, scratch it,” Anissa said. So she took the ticket to her room, scratched it off, and found out she had the “Win For Life” symbol on it! She thought it was a joke, but it was real!
Anissa, who just received her Associate’s Degree, plans to use the money to go back to college and get her Bachelor’s Degree. “It’s a gift my father can leave me with for the rest of my life,” Anissa said. What a lucky girl!
