HOW POWERBALL WINNERS DAVID AND ERICA HARRIG PLAN TO SPEND THEIR MONEY
“I prayed that I stay grounded,” David said, “I said Lord, keep me grounded through this time.” “We just want basics, we’re not looking to go all opulent.” The Powerball lotto winners will replace their aging cars. David has already ordered his car, “For me, I’m having a red Corvette delivered – a new one.” Erica wants a new home with a front porch, a grand staircase, a hot tub and a swimming pool. When David’s Mum was told of the news about the Powerball results and asked what she would like, she said, “a record player”, so that is what she will be getting first. The Harrigs also plan to travel. When asked where to, Erica said, “Anywhere, Africa would be fun. Hawaii, we’ve never been. Alaska. Paris, y’know, something like that.” David, on the other hand, wasn’t sure of the African safari idea and suggested they buy a zebra and put it in their back yard and stay at home instead. The Harrigs also want to use their Powerball lotto success to give back to the community and plan to set up a foundation which will give money to various causes.
“We want to be able to provide for generations of our family,” David said. “We know there’s a responsibility, with doing our part for our community.” The Harrig’s both stressed how they are determined not to be changed by the fortune gained from their lucky Powerball ticket and how they really needed their friends and family more now, than before.
