    Resided in Pella, Iowa
    Customers at Dr. Salami's Café in Pella, Iowa
    Received $100,000 by random chance from another customer in the restaurant (January 31, 2008)
    After a stranger approached and conversed with them at the restaurant, they wrote a $100,000 amount on a blank check given to them by the stranger because they thought that the situation was a joke.
    They did not attempt to decrease the amount of money they desired after the stranger told them that he had the money to validate the check.
    They considered disposing of the check before deciding to endorse and cash it the next day.
    Conditions of their acceptance of the money included using the funds to build or purchase a house, along with naming the first child they had together after the stranger.
    Despite giving media interviews regarding the incident, another condition of accepting the money was to not publicly reveal their surnames or the stranger donor's name.
    They did not attempt to increase the check's amount after its validity was confirmed by the donor.
    They stated that their donor was a male over 50 years old who was in Pella to buy gasoline while traveling to Des Moines, Iowa.
    They stated that the donor enjoyed purchasing items for people, including groceries and specifically a car for someone.
    They stated that before offering the money, the donor was especially interested in the fact that Alissa had a two year old child.
    The donor allegedly requested that Alissa and Barry name their first child together after him because of his regret of having no grandchildren.
    During the incident, the donor tipped the waitress assigned to them $100.00.
    Alissa celebrated her birthday four days after the incident.
