WESTCHESTER, Ill. (CBS) — A couple from the west suburbs had a really big week last week: they celebrated a birthday, their wedding day, and $500,000 in Lottery winnings.
WBBM Newsradio’s Mike Krauser reports Louis Gardner bought the winning ticket at the BP gas station in Westchester.
That’s where he went to pick up his over-sized check on Friday. He said he bought the ticket because his fiancée told him to.
“The day that it happened was on her birthday, June 13th,” he said.
