Apparently, it happens!

Louse White, an 81-year-old woman from Rhode Island asked a family member to buy her a lottery ticket from a local supermarket following an intense craving for rainbow sherbet ice cream. She ended up winning the Powerball jackpot. What did she do with all those millions? She was smart. She took the time to consult with her attorneys first, prior to claiming her sweet prize.   She and her attorney created the Rainbow Sherbet Trust to protect her newly acquired $210 million.
