The Dodge Charger and Hummer are nowhere in sight. The Cadillacs in storage; it needs work Tirabassi cant afford right now. When shes not taking the bus, she drives a hot pink electric bike. A lot of friends are gone, too. Loans were not repaid. (They said) theyve got enough so theyre OK, right? Vinny says. The Tirabassis advise other lottery winners to be wary of sharing their winnings too freely. Keep it to yourself and dont trust anybody but family, she says. But as she heads to work in her scrubs Wednesday, Tirabassi says she couldnt help give so much away. Thats the way I was brought up. Help those who cant help themselves. Rather than mourn the millions, shes concentrating on raising her kids with those same family values. Im trying to get them to learn that they have to work for money, Tirabassi says. Every so often they ask for money and I say I dont have any money till payday. You have to wait till payday. TAKE THE MONEY AND RUN The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corp. does not have a system for following up with winners. There is also no requirement for winners to work with a financial adviser. Thered be no way for us to make that requirement of winners … people are adults and need to be able to make their own decisions, said spokesperson Don Pister.
