The Hometown Hero

Happy New Year (2)

This hometown hero and Surprise Millionaire astounded his small Iowa communityIowa Millionaire by leaving them his entire estate totaling $5.7 million!  The only stipulation the local clothier made was that the funds be used to improve and beautify the slowly fading town.   And what do you suppose they chose as the first project for their significant windfall?  How about building the world’s biggest popcorn ball!

We have often spoke of the surprise many people have upon finding out that a quiet unassuming friend or neighbor has amassed a fortune.  But what a double shock it would be to find out that those same quiet unassuming people were not only millionaires but also well-known insiders in the hip and avant garde New York City art world!

That’s right, Art was the investment vehicle they used to make millions while also giving them an amazing social life along the way.  And this from a man who never earned more than $23,000 a year!
