Lottery delivers with birthday present for Orlando woman

Posted: 31 Aug 2011 05:59 PM PDT

Let’s all wish Judie Hoxie a happy birthday.

You don’t need to buy her a gift, the Florida Lottery took care of that.

It started this morning when her husband, David, gave her a birthday card with Monopoly scratch-off tickets inside.

One of the tickets won $50.

It has been a rough couple of weeks for the Hoxies. Her job at a real estate office was eliminated after 12 years of working there and they were scrambling today trying to find insurance.

Once things settle down, Judie went to the Florida Lottery website to enter her losing tickets for the next second-chance drawing.

Realizing she hadn’t checked the winners of Wednesday’s drawing, she went to that page.

“My name was staring me in the face,” she said.

Her name was at the top of the list as the $10,000 winner in Wednesday’s drawing.

“It was like a miracle win,” said the Orlando woman, who bought the “losing” ticket at the Publix at 12195 Orange Blossom Trail. Of course, by entering the “losing” ticket in the second-chance drawing she turned it into a “winning” ticket.

Judie said she had a good feeling about the third in a series of four drawings when she saw it was on her birthday.

Judie called the Lottery office and when they called back, David answered. He was a little confused about the call until he realized his wife’s good fortune.

“He’s so excited,” Judie said.

Prior to today, Judie’s biggest win had been $250.

Happy birthday!
