Pilsen woman wins $200K lotto

CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

A Pilsen woman who won $200,000 in the lotto plans to use the money to help her community.

Margarita Demartinez, who currently works as a waitress, matched all five winning Lucky Day Lotto numbers in the June 4 evening drawing.

"This lottery prize means so much to me; now I can support the community by donating to my church for their December 12th celebration of the Virgin of Guadalupe," Demartinez said. "There are people who attend the celebration that have no place to live and I want to help."

Demartinez also plans to share the money with her son and daughter, whose birthdays served as the winning numbers.

She bought her winning ticket at Jodos Varieties, 1840 S. Blue Island Ave.
