Daniel Scannell 440
  • Found Money Proves Lucky for Both NorCal and SoCal POWERBALL® Winners

  • Daniel Scannell is an octogenarian who is retired, but still manages to keep quite busy with his wife of 57 years. He is an active member of Seniors in Retirement (S.I.R.S.) and golfs at least once a week in addition to taking part in the active social life of the S.I.R.S. group. On August 29, it was his turn to deliver donuts and coffee to the group, and after making his purchase, on his way out of Safeway, he found a penny. That reminded him to check his POWERBALL tickets from the night before, and he realized he was the winner of the $868,297 prize from the night before. Not wanting to shirk his duties, he delivered the coffee and donuts and then said he had a very important appointment and came in to claim his prize. Scannell says he plans to buy a new car, buy some new golf clubs and possibly take those clubs on a trip to Ireland and Scotland where he can play one of the world’s most famous golf courses, St. Andrews.
