Philip Cimino, 67, a floral designer from Garden City Park, N.Y., hit the $33 million Mega Millions lottery jackpot in the Nov. 2 drawing. He claimed his ticket on Nov. 7, and opted for the lump-sum prize of $16.4 million.
Mr. Cimino, who once wondered if he would ever be able to retire from his 42-year-long career as a floral designer, said he can’t just “give it up like that,” and plans to continue working at least two or three days a week at San Giorgio Florist & Garden Shop in Carle Place, N.Y.
