Debbie Gordon, a 60-year-old office manager at First Class HVAC in Millsboro, organized 37 of her coworkers to take a chance in the Aug. 23 Powerball drawing, and the group won $50,000 after correctly matching four of the five white-ball numbers, plus the Powerball.
Gordon’s husband purchased 74 tickets for the group at Super G in Millsboro. Each person bought two tickets at $2 each, and one turned out to be a winner.
The majority of the players were from Delaware and a few were from Maryland. Gordon told Lottery officials that her fellow employees at First Class are “one big family.”
The winning numbers from the Aug. 23 drawing were 06, 07, 16, 23 and 26. The Powerball number was 04, and the Power Play number was 4x.
