Powerball winner from West Allis surprises woman on Mother's Day

NOW: Powerball winner from West Allis surprises woman on Mother’s Day

ILLINOIS (CBS 58) -- Wisconsin's newest multi-millionaire is showing his charitable side.

Manuel Franco of West Allis is nearly $500 million richer after buying the winning Powerball ticket in March.

Now, a mother in Illinois says Franco approached her in a Target on Sunday and gave her a $200 gift card.

Franco apparently had tried to give the card out to others, but they refused.

Franco had worked at a Target before winning the massive jackpot.

Instead, 7,680 could have had no financial worries anymore with $100,000, somethings wrong with the system.
Or, for the really greedy, 768 could have been millionaires. Too much of anything turns out badly.
