Club Grocery staff member wins big in Louisiana Lottery

EDGARD — Mike Doran, a 15-year staff member at Club Grocery in Edgard, received the surprise of a lifetime when he won $150,024 on a multi-board ticket purchased from the store in the March 20 Powerball drawing.

Doran matched four white ball numbers on one line plus the red Powerball number to win $50,000, according to the Louisiana Lottery Corporation. On another line, Doran matched one white ball number plus a Powerball number. On the third line, he matched the Powerball number. Louisiana Lottery reported that, because Doran added the Power Play option to his ticket, he was able to triple his winnings.

Doran said the win was a blessing. He plans to direct his winnings to his retirement fund and to his grandchildren’s education.

Club Grocery is located at 3035 Highway 18 in Edgard.
