Wouldn’t it be great to start the New Year $550 Million Dollars Richer? There was no jackpot winner in California for the latest lottery draw, but there are 376,004 winning tickets and the jackpot just got bigger. The next big jackpot is $550 Million.
Have you ever wondered where your $2 goes? The mission of the California Lottery is to provide funding to public K-12 schools, community colleges, the California State University, the University of California, the Hastings College of Law, and other specialized public school jurisdictions. Although the funding is nominal (approximately 1%) when compared to the state’s overall education budget and the system’s needs, these dollars help attract and retain quality teachers, buy classroom supplies and state-of-the-art equipment, and keep critical programs running. Since 1985, the overall enhancement dollars allocated towards California education is $27,974,320,484.
What would you do if you picked the lucky winning numbers? Take a trip? Quit your job? Buy a House? Pay off your School Loans? When you play $2 Powerball, anything is possible. Drawings are held every Wednesday and Saturday. So grab a ticket today at the Win-River Mini-Mart and believe in something beyond belief.
