An attorney for the 11 family members that won the $85.7 million Powerball jackpot says they plan on buying new homes, and giving a lot of their winnings to charity.

George Bayhi claimed the family's winnings today in Baton Rouge.  He said they chose to take a single lump sum payment of $45,770,486.

While the family didn't want to give their names, Bayhi said they are Asian-American and live in Baton Rouge.  He also said they took turns pooling money and buying tickets since the lottery began, and their winning ticket was a Quick Pick bought with a ten-dollar bill.  Many of them work for a family business, and their attorney said they plan on continuing to do so.

News 2 will have more on today's jackpot claim at noon, and later this afternoon starting at 4.
