ROCKY HILL, Conn. — Members of a wealth management firm on Monday claimed a $254 million Powerball jackpot first announced on Nov. 2.
The 27-day mystery of who won ended when Greg Skidmore, Brandon Lacoff and Tim Davidson appeared at the Connecticut Lottery headquarters and revealed themselves as the trustees for a family trust created to handle the funds.
The Putnam Avenue Family Trust, named after the street address for Belpointe Asset Management, is taking the after-tax lump sum of $103.5 million in cash. It was not clear how many members are in the trust.
A lawyer for the trust said a "significant amount" will go to charity.
Davidson, a portfolio manager with Belpointe Asset Management, bought the $1 quick pick ticket at the Shippan Point Getty station in Stamford. The winning numbers were 12-14-34-39-46, Powerball 36.
Skidmore, who is president of Belpointe, said the jackpot "feels good."
The jackpot was the largest ever won in Connecticut and the 12th biggest in Powerball history.
Lacoff is managing director of the firm.
