MARRERO, LA (WVUE) - The holidays may be over, but Sherri Fieramusca has cause for continued celebration. The 47-year-old Marrero resident stepped forward last week to claim the $500,000 Lotto jackpot prize won in the Dec. 23 drawing.
Fieramusca received $350,000 after state and federal tax withholdings. She said she plans to use the money to buy a new house.
The ticket was purchased at Hoffer's Discount Shop in Chalmette. The store received a one-time selling bonus of $5,000, which is 1 percent of the jackpot prize.
