This story has been updated after the Powerball jackpot rose to $900 million late Saturday morning.
What would you do if you won the record Powerball jackpot?
Go on a long vacation
Buy a new house — or two
Buy a new car — or two
Start a business
Give it all away
Keep it a secret
It's too much money to even consider
ROCKLAND COUNTY, N.Y. - With the Powerball jackpot sitting right around the $900 million-dollar mark as Saturday night's drawing nears, Daily Voice wondered what the average person might do with that kind of cash.
DV polled several spectators at a pair of sporting events in Rockland County Friday night, and people's hearts seem to be in the right place - ready to help the needy, as well was their own families - and a little vacation time never hurt.
Michael Coffey, 54, of Pearl River: "I'd help a lot of needy people... and I don't know where for sure, but my next house might be on the Jersey Shore, in Florida, or maybe Hawaii."
Francis Duffy, 92, of Pearl River took the smart approach: "I'd give it to my wife. It might be hard to give it all away... but I'd help all of my children."
Travis Jackson, 44, a guidance counselor at Suffern Middle School showed his true colors - Rangers Blue: "I'd follow the Rangers for the entire season on the road. Stay in the finest hotels... all after finishing the current school year, of course. I'd also take care of my family, and do some charitable work."
Todd Mancuso, 37, of Newburgh, who works at Sport-O-Rama in Monsey: "I'd pay off all the bills, hook up the family, and take a vacation. I'd donate a bunch to charity... then see where that leaves me. I might add some expensive baseball cards to my collection."
Scott Kaplin, 43, of Suffern: "I'd keep working, but give the money to my family, and whoever was in need. It would be a dream come true."
