Downtown Augusta artist wins more than $50,000 in Fantasy 5

Waynette Kasperek, 54, of Grovetown, said she and her husband, Frank, plan to use their Fantasy 5 winnings to pay off some bills. Kasperek bought her ticket Oct. 29.



A downtown artist found herself more than $50,000 richer after her recent Fantasy 5 win.

Waynette Kasperek, 54, of Grovetown, said this is her second win.

A few years ago she and her husband, Frank, won $175,000 in the Maryland Lottery, according to a news release.

“I was ecstatic,” she said of her most recent win. “I think I was stunned, too.”

Kasperek, an artist at Odd Fellows Art Gallery in downtown Augusta, bought her winning ticket worth $54,771 on Oct. 29 at Lewiston Express, 107 Lewiston Road in Grovetown, and randomly chose the winning numbers.

“We have some bills and we’re going to pay them off,” she said of her plans for the cash. “We’re going to share some with our children and stick some away in savings.”
