The California Lottery Mega Millions game has a half-billion dollar jackpot for Friday night’s draw.
Let that roll around on your tongue for a while. Half a billion dollars. $500 million. A whole lotta cash. Any way you phrase it, if you win the jackpot you better learn how to say “new tax bracket."
The big jackpot could mean instant financial security for some lucky person and a chance at some serious philanthropy. If a Milpitas citizen wins the jackpot Friday, what would you like that person to do for Milpitas?
Put your answer in the comments. Tomorrow Milpitas Patch will publish a poll to try and determine readers' favorite philanthropic idea for a potential lottery winner living in Milpitas.
Spoiler alert: One of the poll options will be: set up a trust fund to fully fund art and music programs in all Milpitas schools and pre-schools.
