Christmas came a little bit later for one Dobbs Ferry resident who won $25,000 in the New York Lottery.
Carmine Mobilia purchased his winning Multiply Your Money! scratch-off ticket at the Steinmann Deli at 2712 Gomer St. in Yorktown Heights. Mobilia will be able to cash in his prize at one of the lotteries services centers, which includes Empire City Casino at Yonkers Raceway.
The New York Lottery is the country’s largest and most profitable lottery, according to the press release, which contributed about $2.9 billion in 2011-12 for New York State Education. The lottery contributes 15 percent of total state education funding to local schools districts.
