Some folks have all the luck.
Just two years after her wealthy businessman brother won $1 million a year for life in the lottery, Manhattan party planner Cindy Altunis has scored a $1 million jackpot -- with a ticket bought at the same gas station where her brother got his.

I dunno. Perhaps she saw me and my friends as a "party crasher" but I did attend the party with an invite from her brother.
