      A very kind gesture. I cannot understand how anyone could say she is flaunting her money around. She even tried to deny she was the PB winner.

      so she is now a liar saying shes not the power ball winner and cheat from cutting Mindy off in line.

      is there anything the ole woman won't do?

      at her request she sure is trying to keep her privacy LOL

              why do people react to this news very differently than the other news where another recent Powerball winner who promised to pay rent for everybody in his block?

              What's different? We see a mix of congratulations, snide comments, silliness, and off-topic rants, etc. This is LP! Thumbs Up

              But there is one important difference:

              One paid, the other only pledged.

              The story for Gloria is after it was already paid and done, for a finite set of all patrons in the restaurant at the time. Like true charity, you only find out afterwards.

              For Pedro's story, it was a pledge to pay, on an open ended "month or two" for his entire block. I don't know that block, if there are residential/commercial, how many owner/renter, high rises, etc. Very hard to judge. Any confirmation it was done yet?

                People said just how Pedro would be broke within a few years. Nobody said the same thing about Gloria in this thread. Perhaps her old age is a factor but there may be other factors I don't know.

                  I'd again say, different situations:

                  Gloria paid only a small $2600 tab for meals in 1 restaurant at 1 specific time.

                  Pedro has an open ended plege to pay for an entire city block for a month or two, without knowing all the financial details of each building or unit beforehand. Some might see this as irresponsible with money and their emotions took over from there. Could be millions? I don't know. Who knows the size of the block and what kind of units this pledge would cover? See what i mean.

                    I see your point.

                      Anyone who has ever bought the 'bar' a round could definitely see where this lady was coming from.

                      Genuine good feeling I'd say.

                        Exactly what I was referred to earlier in the post.

                            Must be a really slow news day when Gloria sightings are the hot topic.

                              I Agree!  maybe she will hurry up and blow through that money then we can read about her sitting in Florida down in alligator lane somewhere in a Trailer park sleeping in the back of a VW bus and i hope Mindy drives by in her Mercedes and waves at her LOL
