Do you know any Hmong
« on: November 12, 2019, 02:49:05 PM »
lotto winners ... that hit the big jackpot?

If so, where are they now, as far as using that money to make a difference in their lives?
And if you know them personally, did their attitude change towards the common people?

Some Yang (maybe Lor/Lee?) family won the lotto in NC several years ago. I think they're built a nice house on some land they bought and started a business. Can't remember the specifics.

Some Hmong family won the lottery in one of the cities ending in -ville in MN within the last decade as well. Never heard the specifics on that one.

Truth be told, I'd go into hiding too. I can imagine all the new relatives you suddenly have after winning.

Yes, better be humble and stay quiet.
