Local couple sharing Lotto prize with daughter
Webster, N.Y.- A couple from Penfield became this area’s newest millionaires Tuesday.
Warren and Joan Chase are the co-winners of a $10,700,000 Lotto jackpot drawn on June 29.
A second jackpot winning ticket for the same drawing was sold in the Bronx.
Tuesday, they received their ceremonial prize check at Baytowne Liquor on Empire Boulevard in Webster where Warren Chase bought the lucky ticket.
Chase, 69, a retired sales manager for Lake Beverages, said he routinely buys his Lottery tickets every Tuesday and Thursday at the liquor store and then checks the winning numbers at home after Sunday mass.
On June 30, Chase said he checked the paper several times before realizing one set of numbers he’s been playing for years matched the six Lotto numbers drawn the previous night.
“I brought the ticket and the paper out to my wife and said, ‘Honey, check these numbers.’ We couldn’t believe it.”
Chase and his wife Joan, 69, offered to split the jackpot with their daughter Darcy Frisina, a stay at home mom.
Frisina, 39, said she was thrilled with the offer and added, “It will make life comfortable.”
The family members opted for the lump sum payment totaling just over $3.4 million.
The trio plans to keep their new found wealth in the family, agreeing they will use the money to take care of one another.
They said they will also donate some money to Golisano Children’s Hospital where their grandson, Zach, received treatment.
