Wayne Suchy

Congratulations Wayne!

“I know stuff like this happens, but never to me,” said Wayne Suchy of Brooklyn Park. After winning $50,000 in the Lottery’s Minnesota Millionaire Club drawing on Nov. 14, Wayne can’t say that anymore. “It’s been a perfect day,” Wayne said with a smile as he received his prize check.
