Macon Woman Walking in a Winter Wonderland with $100,000 Holiday Treasures Win

Tuesday, November 16, 2004

ATLANTA – The holidays are here for Macon’s Debra Wilburn. The 48-year-old mother of three played Holiday Treasures and won the Georgia Lottery instant game’s $100,000 top prize.

Ms. Wilburn purchased her lucky ticket at Rocky’s Quick Shop, located at 203 Green St. in Warner Robins. She stopped by the store for a few soft drinks and decided to buy a Holiday Treasures ticket.

According to Ms. Wilburn, she scratched the ticket at home and was thunderstruck to learn that she was a top prize winner. “I almost passed out!” she exclaims. “I was speechless!”

Ms. Wilburn, an office manager for a defensive driving school, plans to pay off her mortgage and pay bills with her winnings.

Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corporation has returned over $7 billion to the state of Georgia for education. All Georgia Lottery profits go to pay for specific educational programs. These include Georgia’s HOPE scholarship program; a statewide, voluntary pre-kindergarten program for four-year-olds; and a wide range of technological and capital upgrades for the state’s schools, technical institutes, colleges, universities and public libraries.
