TORONTO, ON – David Brown and Emanoil (Mike) Kopoulos of Orangeville are celebrating after winning $20,481,125.50 in the March 21, 2018 LOTTO 6/49 draw.
Mike, a metal recycler, checked their ticket following the draw. “I started screaming when I saw our numbers come up. I was shaking!”
The father of two decided to surprise his friend of many years with the news of their big win. “I called David and made up a story that he had to come meet me because I had some work for him. When he arrived, I told him that we won and he started screaming!” Mike laughed.
“I took a picture of the ticket. I was overwhelmed,” shared David, a self-employed father of three.
The pair plan to help family and friends, pay off their mortgages, travel and buy new gear for their businesses. They both also plan to pay their win forward by supporting their community and their favourite charities.
“I’d like to help the community where I’ve lived most of my life. I want to give back to those that have supported us and help out other local small businesses,” concluded David.
The winning ticket was purchased at Petro Canada on Broadway Avenue in Orangeville.
