76-year-old wins new roof from Owens Corning

TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

One Toledo grandmother says she is counting her blessings as one local company has helped make a wish come true for her.

Renate Rodriguz says she's been in need of a roof for the past decade. She used her last $3 to purchase a ticket that really paid off. The 76-year-old says she never expected to win.

"I won, in my whole lifetime, maybe one bottle of whiskey," Rodriguz said. "And I don't even drink."

So she was surprised when she was picked as a winner of a new roof from Owens Corning. She says she still can't believe the change.

"I was just so blessed to have that winning ticket," she said. "Unbelievable. I still, every day, look up there and see if it's still there."

Rodriguz says her old shingles needed fixed but she's on a fixed income and didn't have the money to do it, so she took a risk to buy the ticket.

The workers finished the job in just one day.

"They had a wonderful crew," she said. "They were just like little beavers. Up and down the ladders, in and out."
