History of the Miracle Mile

The history of the Miracle Mile is truly miraculous!

In the 1990s, several grocery and convenience stores (mostly on a stretch of South Main Street) in Fond du Lac, WI sold large winning Wisconsin Lottery tickets. The effects of the social, media and internet buzz that resulted from this phenomenon made the stretch of Main Street to commonly be known as "The Miracle Mile."

Big Dates

7-7-1993 - The day that started it all. A $100+ million winner was declared... The ticket, was sold at 311 Winnebago Drive (a Sentry Grocery Store that is now closed) beginning the Miracle Mile legacy.

8-5-2006 - Ma and Pa's Grocery Express (now Korneli WI), located at 506 S Main St., sold an exclusive winning Powerball ticket for $209 million. Adding to the fun, the ticket was claimed by 100 factory workers from Sargento Cheese in Plymouth, Wisconsin.

1-1-2008 - Happy New Year to a small group of wait staff and kitchen workers at a local Friar Tuck's Restaurant in Fond du Lac. The group won $1 million in the Holiday Millions Raffle from a ticket bought at Ma and Pa's Grocery Express (now Korneli WI), located at 506 S Main St.

3-24-10 - Another $1 million winner from a ticket bought at Ma and Pa's Grocery Express (now Korneli WI), located at 506 S Main St.
