Powerball Winners Use $300 Million Jackpot To Help Their Town.
All Cindy and Mark could do was join the other hopefuls in watching the live drawing.
The couple understood that their chances of winning were slim to none, but it was still fun to watch the drawing, knowing that they had a stake in the money. As the announcer started to draw the balls, the couple was amused to see that some of their numbers matched.

That's when things got pretty intense in the Hill's house.
The Hills watched as their numbers continued to match the numbers that were being called on the TV. And then it was over. The Hills won the Powerball and they knew that their lives were about to change forever.
The Hills ended up walking away with half of the total amount of the Powerball.
Now that the Hills were $300 million richer they were the talk of the town. And it seemed like everyone they spoke to wanted to know the same thing: what were they going to do with the money?
Money truly changes people and some people allow it to bring out the negative in them.
Would Mark and Cindy allow the money to change who they were as people, or would they use the money to show who they were as people? The whole community would soon see who the Hills really were.

Unfortunately, many people who strike it rich tend to change for the worst.
A lot of big winners spend their earnings on mansions and sports cars. And others decide to spend all of their money in a short amount of time, causing them to go into even more debt than they were in before.
