There is a new millionaire in Monroe County. Migdalia Julia, a mother of three, was presented with a $1,000,000 check Friday morning for winning the second place prize in a November Mega Millions drawing.

Julia said, “I always play Mega Millions when the jackpot gets over $100,000,000. I turned in a Take Five winner and bought a $1 Quick Pick for the next day’s Mega drawing. I always go with the Quick Picks.” The winning ticket was purchased at Wegmans on East Ridge Road in Irondequoit.

Julia will receive a lump sum in the amount of $661,800 after required withholdings. What will she do with the money? She said, “I plan to take care of family and then take care of myself. Family comes first.”
