Newnan tow truck driver pulls in $100K win

Tuesday, June 19, 2012

ATLANTA – A Newnan tow truck driver is hauling a Georgia Lottery win. Dorough Bright, 54, won $100,000 playing 50X The Money.

“I couldn’t believe it,” he said while claiming his prize Monday.

Married with six children, Bright will use some of his winnings to treat his 10 grandchildren to something special.

“I’ll probably take all the grandkids to Florida,” he said. “They just want to go to the beach.”

50X The Money is an instant game with prizes up to $1 million.

Bright purchased his lucky ticket at Get N Go, 1150 Main St., Whitesburg.

Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corp. has returned more than $13.4 billion to the state of Georgia for education. All Georgia Lottery profits go to pay for specific educational programs, including Georgia’s HOPE Scholarship Program and Georgia’s Pre-K Program. More than 1.4 million students have received HOPE, and more than 1.1 million 4-year-olds have attended the statewide, voluntary prekindergarten program.
