When someone drops $100,000 USD on lottery tickets, they intend to win the lottery. That’s exactly what Todd Graves, co-founder of the fast food chain, Raising Cane’s is trying to do. He purchased 50,000 lottery tickets at $2 USD a piece.

If he wins the lottery with one of the 50,000 tickets purchased, he will share the winnings with all of the Raising Cane’s employees. Now that’s a generous guy!

“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.” -Todd Graves, co-founder of Raising Cane’s

It’s safe to say there are a lot of Raising Cane’s employees hoping and praying that Todd Graves has a winning ticket as a result of the Tuesday night drawing on 26 July 2022.

“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.” -Todd Graves, co-founder of Raising Cane’s
