Man wins $11,000 Ring, Proposes On The Spot
Roanoke Co., VA - A Franklin County man went head-to-head with a dozen other soon-to-be grooms as they frantically hunted for an $11,000 diamond ring.The ring was hidden in a one ton wedding cake."I wasn't really expecting to win. She just wanted to see me dig through the cake and thought that would be memorable enough. So I'm glad I was just lucky enough to find the ring," said Boughton.It was all a lot to take in for Boughton's new fiancee, Hanna Butta of Rocky Mount."It was just such a surprise. I mean I wasn't expecting... I mean I wanted him to get it but I wasn't expecting it. I don't even know what to say I'm so flustered," said Butta.Flustered because it took Boughton just a few seconds more to get down on one knee and pop the question. She did say, 'yes'.The happy couple is expecting a baby later this year.The event was all sponsored by K92, Fink's Jewelers and Kroger's.
