Lake Charles man wins Powerball

August 26, 2009

An ordinary trip to the grocery store turned out to be extraordinary for the Fournerat family from Lake Charles. The Powerball ticket purchased during that shopping trip matched four of the five white ball numbers plus the red Powerball number from the Aug. 15 drawing to win $10,000.

"I was outside washing my motorcycle when my wife came out and told me that I needed to come inside to look at our Powerball ticket,"
explained 66-year-old Dickie Fournerat. "When I looked at the numbers on our ticket and then in the newspaper, I said ‘I sure hope the paper is right!'"

Fournerat purchased his winning ticket at Albertson's #2717 on Ryan Street in Lake Charles. He said he will put his winnings into savings.

The winning numbers for the Aug. 15 Powerball drawing were
14-15-26-32-36 and the Powerball number was 12.
