Pizza Search Leads to Pile of Dough


Stopping at Par Mar 10 one day to get 5 Powerball tickets with the power play option was perhaps one of the great decisions that Beverly Swartzmiler ever made because one of the Powerball tickets that she bought was a winning ticket.


Beverly Swartzmiller comes from Sisterville and is not the type who always buys lottery tickets. In fact, she only buys every few times so when she decided to try her luck that day after she got herself a pizza, it really came as a great surprise.


It is a privilege and a great opportunity to get this chance.
