After 30 years, Daisy hits the jackpot
THEY say good things come to those who wait, and for Daisy Schafer, it is certainly true.
After 30 years of playing at Grafton District Services Club, last week the Grafton resident finally hit the jackpot, winning $10,000 in the club's Frantic Friday Frenzy.
For Mrs Schafer, the money was a welcome surprise.
"Patience is a virtue," she laughed.
"I've been going to the club for 30 years, so I had to eventually win it."
Rather than splashing out on a fancy car or jewellery, Mrs Schafer said she had already deposited the cash in the bank.
She said she would probably start spending her winnings by visiting her children and grand-children in Queensland this year.
"I've got enough already," she said.
Although winning was a thrill for Mrs Schafer, she said she was happy just to visit the club to catch up with her friends.
"I've had a great life ... I've had lots of fun there and plenty of friends," she said.
"You can't ask for any more than that."
