Grandfather Gifts $25,000 A Year for Life Prize to Granddaughter

Peter Beckage, 85, has shown true selflessness after donating his winnings to his granddaughter following a $25,000 a year for life prize. Beckage, purchased his North Carolina Lottery ticket from Carlton’s Hampton Road Grocery which is located in Clemmons after enjoying a Palm Sunday breakfast of pancakes with his grand-daughter Kelly Thomas, who is 22 years old. He recently moved in with his daughter to be close with the family and regularly plays the lottery game. The following evening, he stayed awake to watch the drawing, and saw that he got all five numbers– which he couldn’t believe and found it impossible to go back to sleep for obvious reasons. Beckage explained that he’s decided to give the money to his grand-daughter who will soon begin studying at UNC-Wilmington because he says he’s always known that if he ever did win that he would share it and therefore he is very happy to be able to give this gift to her.

The Speedway store is located in the Milwaukee suburb in New Berlin, a small city of around 40,000 people. What’s funny is, despite feeling very lucky that day, Franco did not check his tickets the night of the drawing, and went to work without checking...

Yet, 72 hours later would you believe it he won $1.12M through the Lotto Plus 1 draw on Saturday and went on to claim the winnings at the Lottery headquarters which are located on Abbey Street in Dublin, with his brother Shane right by his side. “I’m not going to let this go to my head, I have my family beside me and they will keep me right” he declared. He says that this big win is down to his father, who’d headed down to the shop for bread and milk, to discover the shop had neither so he purchased 3 lottery tickets instead, one for himself, his wife and his son.
