Still-Unidentified Lottery Winner Gets Her Dough … But Will She Stay Anonymous?

The organisation Girls Inc was given $150,000 and checks of $33,000 each were dispersed to chapters of the End 68 Hours of Hunger in cities across New Hampshire. "She just wants to do good things".

New Hampshire is among the few other states that allow people to form a trust to claim prize money anonymously.

New Hampshire Judge Charles Temple ruled last month that the woman may transfer the prize money into a trust she has set up, the Good Karma Family Trust of 2018, while he decides whether to allow her to remain anonymous.

New Hampshire lottery executive director Charlie McIntyre said that the Powerball victor must abide by the disclosure laws "like any other", in February.

A New Hampshire woman who won a $559.7 million Powerball jackpot will be donating roughly $250,000 of her winnings to charities that feed hungry children and help young girls in the state, her lawyers said.

She is suing the state lottery commission to be exempt from New Hampshire's "Right to Know Law" which intends to provide transparency and assure the public that winners aren't associated with the lottery. If there is no jackpot victor, the amount grows even larger for the next drawing.

Weaver also notices that many female lottery winners are keen on anonymity: "Thankfully theLotter is experienced in handling such privacy-related requests". The winning Powerball ticket was sold at Reed's Ferry Market in Merrimack for the January 6 drawing. There are myriad self-inflicted problems that can befall a person who suddenly comes into great wealth.

Though it still remains to be seen whether or not the New Hampshire victor will have to come forward with her identity, her lawyer insists that in the meantime she intends to keep distributing money to charities.
