Without knowing how much his ticket was worth, a Westland man who had won the Fantasy 5 lottery made the decision to do something he had always wanted to do — make a donation.

According to Michigan Lottery officials, the 36-year-old Westland man who won on Oct. 18 immediately wrote a $1,000 check to U-M's C.S. Mott Children's Hospital.

The release said he has chosen to remain anonymous, but his winning ended up totaling $105,000. The winning ticket was sold at the Kroger at 200 S. Merriman Road.

What we didn't give away was purloined by bankers and a stock broker. We still possess what we gave away.
