$336 Million Powerball Winner Steps Forward, ABC6 Crew Eats Sherbet

The three week old mystery was solved Tuesday when the $336.4 million Powerball jackpot winner came forward at a Powerball press conference. 81-year old Louise White from Newport collected her check, a $210 million lump sum payment.

     White set up a trust called the “Rainbow Sherbet Fund,” because she bought the ticket from a Newport Stop & Shop store while she was there buying rainbow sherbet for her family.

     The ABC6 Team wanted to get in on the action, too. While they didn't purchase lottery tickets, they DID enjoy some rainbow sherbet during our 5:00 newscast.
