A group of 11 co-workers at Vanderbilt University Medical Center will share a $50,000 Powerball prize just “two or three” months after they began playing together. The group’s representative, Dana Fulton, is a nurse who claimed the group’s prize on Friday.
“We’ve just started playing together, and I guess it paid off pretty quick!” said Dana.
The group won when their ticket matched 4 of the 5 white numbers drawn plus the red Powerball number on Oct. 11, 2017.
