What would you do if you won the lottery?  Coral Springs resident Miguel Pilgram answered that question by giving back to the community.  Pilgram won $52 million in the Florida Lottery and has since made a name for himself with his volunteer work and philanthropic endeavors.

Broward County Commissioner Michael Udine will honor Pilgram with a proclamation at Tuesday’s Broward County Commission proclaiming February 6th as “Miguel Pilgram Day.”

Pilgram picked the winning numbers in the Florida Lottery in April 2010 and chose a one-time, lump sum payment for his winnings in the amount of $29 million.  Pilgram believes strongly in giving back to his community and has made it his focus to help the underprivileged and underserved members of Broward County. He doesn’t just give money, he gets involved and routinely volunteers at local organizations including the Boys & Girls Club, United Way, and the Pace Center for Girls.

Commissioner Udine will present Mr. Pilgram with a proclamation during tomorrow’s regularly scheduled Commission meeting at 10AM at the Governmental Center, 115 S. Andrews Ave, Room 422 in Fort Lauderdale.
