Powerball Winner

October 15th, 2009 by Mike Vasilinda

Dr. William Steele, a dermatologist and his wife claimed the first winning Powerball ticket sold in Florida today. The game began in January. The couple will take home more than a hundred million dollars, but says the money wont do much to change their lives

Its a good thing for education,” Steele said. “We actually know, personally, another Powerball winner, from my past. So you always think, maybe if he won, I could win.

“It was about four in the morning, I think, and I woke my wife up and said, honey, do you love me? And she said, Ive always loved you,” he said. “And Isaid, I love you too, oh by the way…She said, no, you didnt, go back to sleep. And I said, no honey, I did.

We wanted to be able to fuel our childrens dreams and help them be able to be of service, to work in the community,” wife Frankie Steele said. “And this well help them do that as well, so thats part of our dream.

The couple says they will set up a foundation and screening process to help distribute some of the money to those in need.
