A Mount Zion resident is Illinois’ newest millionaire. David Marques is the lucky person who bought the one-million dollar winning Powerball ticket in Raymond for the Powerball drawing back on August 12.
Marques is an occasional Powerball player when the jackpots are bigger. He was on his way to a baseball game in St. Louis when he bought the ticket at the West End Food Mart in Raymond.
Marques says he and his wife plan on paying their bills and investing their winnings. He says they may also spend some of the money on a trip to Hawaii next year to celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary.
