What do an allergy shot and a million-dollar lottery ticket have in common? Larry Meador got them on the same day.
The Richmond man was on his way to get the shot when he stopped for a soda at the 7-Eleven at 1300 East Nine Mile Road in Highland Springs. While he was there,he bought a Virginia's New Year's Millionaire Raffle ticket from the Virginia Lottery.
His ticket was #235060. On January 2,the day after the raffle drawing,his wife Gayle called with an unusual question.
"Is this a real ticket?" she asked.
When he confirmed that it was indeed real,she replied,"You won!"
On January 10,the couple returned to the store to receive their check from Virginia Lottery Executive Director Paula Otto. The store received a $10,000 bonus for selling the $1 million ticket.
