This is a great way to kick off the month of August! In a year where it seems like we are being bombarded with terrible news, some GREAT news just happened in Charlotte, NC! Bobby Howie tried his luck with a $5 Carolina Panther scratch off ticket that he bought from the Express Mart on Beatties Ford Road. To his surprise, he was a winner of the top prize of $200,000. Howie has claimed his prize and after taxes he brought home an impressive $141,501. The Carolina Panthers scratch off game launched last month and there is still one more $200,000 ticket remaining. Congratulations Bobby Howie, what a great way to kick off the month!
