The $1,000,000 DC Mega Millions prize from the September 9game has been claimed by Aisha Hawkins of Capitol Heights, MD. The winning ticket was purchased at Palisades Deli & Market on 4554 MacArthur Blvd., NW. The winning numbers were 25-34-55-70-71, and the Mega Ball number was 1. Hawkins matched every number except the Mega Ball.

“I thought the ticket was for $250,000! And, I was thankful for that. When I called the lottery to make sure, the nice lady said that I’d won $1,000,000! I had a hot flash!” recalled the surprised stay-at-home mom of four, who runs a nonprofit benefitting critically ill children. “I feel very fortunate. I am very thankful.”

“We are always excited to congratulate winners,” said Buddy Roogow, executive director of the DC Lottery. “And, Aisha has been a standout because of her care and her commitment.”

When asked what she was going to do next, she replied delightfully, “We have some home improvements in mind. But right now, I’m going to have lunch with my husband.”
