CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) – A group of 12 co-workers who called themselves the “IMS Dreamers” will split the $1 million Powerball prize from Wednesday’s drawing.
The 12, who are employees of Innovative Mattress Solutions in Winfield, were introduced at a press conference in Charleston Friday afternoon.
The group bought 60 Powerball tickets for Wednesday’s drawing.
Each person received roughly $57,000 after taxes.
They purchased their winning ticket at the Little General on Elm Street in Winfield.
The “IMS Dreamers” are Susan Bennett, Stacy Sockwell, Rhonda Neal, Misty Jenkins, Kristen Anderson, Kendra Preast, Jennifer Norton, Jason Swan, Danny Beckner, Cindy Jeffers, Brian Patterson and Andrew Bloomfield
“We are all hard working people that took a chance on a dream,” said Susan Bennett, one of the lucky winners. “No, it’s not the $400 million. No, we cannot retire. But we can pay off some debts, take a nice vacation this summer, and continue to dream!”
Little General will receive a $10,000 sales bonus for this ticket.
