A woman from Grandview woke up being $250,000 richer after winning the Powerball drawing earlier this month.

The woman, whose identity has not been revealed, said she bought her ticket on Feb. 2 at the El Mercado store in Grandview.

According to a press release, the woman said she wasn’t sure if she had won since it was her first time buying a ticket.

The woman and her husband plan to become homeowners after the win.

Proceeds from Washington’s Lottery benefit the Washington Opportunity Pathways Account, which helps college students statewide.
