It took a couple months to cash in their winning ticket, but seven members of the Dlabola family finally are sharing a $43,828 jackpot from the Take Five lottery drawing from Nov. 3.
"I kept the win a secret until my wife returned from a trip to Europe," said Guenter Dlabola of Lancaster, who bought his ticket at the Corner Store, 155 Lake Ave., Lancaster. He said he will use his share of the winnings to take a trip to Florida for a little golfing.
In addition to his wife, Lore, the prize will be divided among John and Nancy Detzler of Depew, Frank and Darlene Dlabola of West Seneca and Susan McKenzie of Cheektowaga. The Dlabolas had one of four winning tickets in the Nov. 3 drawing.
