The Kin Club of Russell’s fifth Catch the Ace lottery has reached a quarter million dollars jackpot and continues to grow, and each weekly winner is taking home more than $12,000. The club takes no commission from ticket sales, and after approved expenses, all the remaining proceeds go straight to charity.
