Red Wing man wins $88,874
Red Wing resident Ron Walm won $88,874 in the state Northstar Cash lottery, he discovered on the Fourth of July.
He had gone to pick up potato salad and buns for his holiday barbeque when he checked his ticket and noticed it was a winner.
"I couldn't believe it," he said. "I just thought, 'You've got to be kidding me.'"
He went home to tell his family, leading to the "best Fourth yet."
"It was so nice to be able to share it with the family," he said.
He purchased the winning ticket at Kwik Trip on Highway 61 in Red Wing and claimed his prize at the Lottery headquarters in Roseville on July 6. The winning numbers were drawn July 3.
There are still three Northstar Cash jackpots unclaimed, with all three tickets sold in Hennepin County.
