Capitals Vice President of Communications Sergey Kocharov has had a lot of good fortune recently and this is just another addition to his collection.
A little more than a year after his team won the Stanley Cup, Kocharov casually purchased a Powerball ticket while grocery shopping at Harris Teeter on Kings Mill Lane.
“I saw the Powerball sign and said, ‘I may as well try it,’" he recalled to valottery.com
Kocharov's victory was a major win for Harris Teeter too, as they received a "$10,000 bonus from the Virginia Lottery for selling the winning ticket."
“I was surprised,” Kocharov said. “I always hear about jackpot wins. It feels great!”
Kocharov made sure to give proper credit where it was due: his father.
On for tennis match this week for sure -but let it be known that this idea was all from my old man (I never play Lol) who was in town for four days and left a happy man. Couldn’t be more happier for my dad - the hardest working family man and my role model. Be at work tomorrow :) https://t.co/m0YXebBmJG— Sergey Kocharov (@SergeyKocharov) August 12, 2019
