Kier and Lynn Fitzgerald were still in disbelief when they arrived at the Lottery’s Nashville headquarters to claim their PICK 5 win of $216,189 from the drawing on June 7. “We’ll believe it when the money is in the bank!” Kier, who purchased the lucky ticket at Z Market in Bartlett, plans to pay bills (once the money’s in the bank!). Good luck to the Fitzgeralds!
