BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — The founder of Raising Cane’s, Todd Graves, says he has purchased 50,000 Mega Millions tickets for his employees.
According to Raising Cane’s, if any of the 50,000 tickets purchased is the lucky number, company employees would win thousands. The company said it has spent the last two years increasing wages for its employees with over $200 million in wage increases.
“As soon as we heard how big this jackpot prize is, we couldn’t miss out on the chance to win the Mega Millions jackpot and share it with our Crew who always stand together,” Graves said. “None of what we do at Cane’s would be possible without our Crew, which is why we are always looking for ways to bring them a little extra fun, and if we’re lucky, a surprise on Wednesday morning.”
The jackpot is now at $790 million and the next drawing will be taking place on Tuesday, July 26 at 11 p.m. ET.
