Somewhere in Kansas a Powerball lottery player shines as a hero for sending their winning ticket anonymously by mail to a local hospital.
The only message from the generous donor was, “Please accept this gift for the Mitchell County Regional Medical Foundation for the good work you do. God Bless!”
The hospital staff had no idea how much money the ticket might represent so they checked online and found four numbers matching the Powerball jackpot for July 17.
The ticket was worth $10,000.
The winnings will be added to their current fundraising campaign to complete new accommodation where patients’ families can stay overnight if they need to.
