Just goes to show you brushing your teeth has many wonderful benefits,

Congrats to Zippy ans BettyJo, enjoy!

Yeah.

Now I am going to see what it will take to convince my community's water supply department to consider adding fluoride to the city's drinking water, all in support of healthy living and healthy teeth for everyone.

Congratulations to the Voniers!

        He turned it in really fast. Wonnder Why he didn't wait to see if he could claim anonymously or at least avoid press conference. I'm not sure if you can do either one of those in Georgia. I've never seen this asked, can,would you go to another state so claim anonymous?

        These are the anonymous states DE, KS, MD, ND, OH.

        GA, your state is not one of them.

        No. A winner cannot go to another state to claim a prize.

          The article reads:  "Honey, we won the lotto!" That's what Zippy Vonier, 55, announced to his wife Wednesday morning after discovering that he won $50 million.

          And yet Zippy's wife's, Betty Jo, name appears no where on the publicity check!  Hum. Dupe Alert

          Congratulations on the big jackpot win though!

            It doesn't really matter her name is not on the novelty check. If you are married, your spouse get's half.

                    Sometimes Lady Luck does pick the right people. I always say " I hope that it is someone who needs it and someone who can hadle it. I hope that Mr. Vonier has his team of Professionals together and this wil last many generations to come. The Vonier can now enjoy their retirement and their 3 grandchildren.

                    I know thats what I would do with 38m, as long as my ex-wife didn't find out.

                      Oh all ex-wives will find out.

                        With names like Zippy and Betty Jo, how could you go wrong? I think my smile is more for their names than their win. LOL.

                         

                        Congrats to Zippy and Betty Jo. Dance

                        You have a nice smile Pia!

                          Best Wishes to the Winners!!

                              In general most states do allow the claiming of large prizes by use of the instruments that you have cited. Several states for the record, have paid out jackpot prizes to the trustees of trusts, and representatives of partnerships and LLCs over the years.

                              However, the lottery rules of some states may limit, or even exclude the use of such instruments as a trust to claim a prize.

                              None of these instruments by name alone guarantees anonymity, but what can help ensure anonymity is the manner the business arrangement of the trust is organized and what is in the corporation's organizing documents.

                              Regardless, all ever filed claims papers are subject to FOIA or open records and typically, only to the extents of the FOIA or open records rules of the applicable states.
