Hudson Valley win-for-life lottery winner bought ticket on a whim

Yvette Moscatello had a moment between errands, she recalls, and ran into the Stewart’s in Modena to grab a cup of coffee. On a whim, she also bought a $2,500 a week for life lottery ticket because the colors caught her eye. It was a good choice, as she ended up getting the top prize, making her Ulster County’s first and New York’s ninth million-dollar-plus lottery winner this year.
