HADDONFIELD, N.J. (CBS) – Joanne Falco Monahan had a mastecomy and chemotherapy two years ago and today works for BreastFest, a south Jersey organization that offers financial assistance to those diagnosed with disease who are uninsured. She received quite a surprise when she walked into her friend’s store.
“I walked in and she said I have something for you and then she said we have something further and then she handed me those tickets and I couldn’t believe, because I don’t ever win anything and to win those tickets was a dream come true,” said Monahan.
The tickets were donated by Matt Rutkowski, owner of PennyGreen Landscaping in Runnemede, who has made it a tradition to give away his playoff tickets.
“It’s a good feeling,” said Rutkowski. “There’s so many things going on today to be able to sit back and have that to think about can get you through some bad days.”
And he has a pair of World Series tickets to give away.
Donations can be dropped off at:
