It is located on Pioneer Road in Fond du Lac. While running the errand, he saw a sign that caught our attention.
As per the sign, the Badger 5 was up to $96,000. It seems like luck was on his side and has always been with the Bednarek family. As per the reports by CBS58, Ellen Bednarek said, “And I said ‘what if I could get us married by the tribal chief?’ And he says, ‘I don’t think they do that.’ I said, ‘watch me.'” well it was when they were getting married, but after 21 years of the marriage this still have the good luck with them. “So I came out and said, ‘could you maybe please get me some hot dogs?'” Stated Ellen Bednarek.
A lucky couple:
Well, when this sign at the store caught her husband’s attention. “And I looked, I backed up and saw $96,000. All I had left was a $10 bill. Normally I buy five, and I went there and, ‘oh well, give me $10 worth,'” said Joseph Bednarek. “I don’t know why I did it. Because it was in the 90-some thousands,” Bednarek added. Talking about it, initially, Joseph couldn’t believe he had won the lottery. “I just kept looking at it. What did I do wrong? Did I write them down wrong? I called up two or three times the lottery hotline. They give you all the numbers,” said Bednarek.
Soon he made a call to his wife so that he could check the numbers. “He called me in, and then I looked at the numbers, and I go, ‘these match,'” said Ellen. Bednarek’s $107,000 win while running the errand happened on March 22. After winning such a huge amount of money, the couple has already decided what they will do with it.
How will they use the money:
Bednarek is ‘retired and plans to use the winnings to complete house repairs and add to savings,’ the Wisconsin Lottery said. They are also deciding to replace the roof and pay off a camper. “The rest of the few thousand, we’ll probably fill up our gas tank ten times,” Bednarek added. “That’ll be it.” The most the Bedraneck’s have won in the lottery was $400. The story of this adorable couple instantly became viral as soon as it was available online.
