What Would You Do If You Won the $1.4 Billion Powerball? Here Are Some JP-Centric Ideas

The highest-ever Powerball lottery will take place on Wednesday -- with a $1.4 billion jackpot! So we gotta ask you -- what would you do if you won Wednesday night? How about some Jamaica Plain-centric ideas? 

There are plenty of places to buy Powerball tickets for Wednesday night's drawing: 7-Eleven, Tedeschi and more. And if you're wondering, the lump sum estimate would be a payout of $868 million after taxes! So what would you do with all that cash?

Here's a suggestion: Donate some of it to The Footlight Club to pay for new seats in their theater.

Or donate some cash to the MSPCA-Angell Animal Medical Center so lots of furry cats, dogs, rabbits and more can find homes.

Heck, from the Jamaica Plain News perspective, maybe we'd buy an office on Centre Street and hire a full-time reporter!
