Emmetsburg Man Wins Lottery

Emmetsburg, IA (KICD) — An Emmetsburg man is a big winner in the Iowa Lottery.

35-year old Garrett Manwarren claimed the second of 33 top prizes of $30,000 in the Iowa Lottery’s Let It Snow Crossword instant scratch game.  Manwarren purchased his winning ticket Tuesday, at Hometown Convenience in Emmetsburg, and just over two hours later after having the ticket double checked, he claimed his winnings at the Iowa Lottery’s regional office in Mason City.

Manwarren, a farmer, said he plans on using his lottery winnings to pay off some bills and buy holiday presents for his family, including taking them out to eat.
