Franklin County woman plans to open tire shop after $250,000 win

April 25, 2022 Posted by NC Lottery at 2:14 PM

Abilene Ramirez Navarro of Louisburg said she wants to open a tire shop for her father after a $5 scratch-off ticket pocketed her a $250,000 prize.

“This win is going to be really helpful for us,” Navarro said.

Navarro, a 26-year-old dental assistant, decided to make a quick stop to get a lottery ticket while on her way to the gym. She bought her lucky 20X The Cash ticket from Bailey’s Store on Zebulon Road in Wake Forest.

After buying her ticket, she went back to the car with her mother to scratch it.

“I was like, ‘Oh my God, is this true,’” Navarro said. “I couldn’t believe it.”

Navarro, still in disbelief, showed the winning ticket to her mother.

“We were not prepared for this at all,” Navarro said. “We’re just so happy.”

Navarro arrived at lottery headquarters on Monday to collect her prize and, after required state and federal tax withholdings, took home $177,526.

She said her father currently works in construction, but she would like to help him open his own tire shop with her winnings.
