(WKOW) — The Wisconsin man who won more than $700 million in the Powerball lottery is giving back.
He surprised a woman with a gift card at a Target in Illinois.
Nicole Dimitro was looking for pull-ups at the store in Norridge, not far from O’Hare Airport.
It happened to be Mother’s Day and a man walked over to her.
“He said I’m Manuel Franco. I was the Powerball winner in Milwaukee and I wanted to give you this gift of $200 for Target. A target gift card.” Dimitro said.
Dimitro said Franco told her other people refused the gift card because they thought he was trying to scam them.
Franco used to work at a Target in New Berlin.
He’s from West Allis and won $768 million in March.
