Fireworks continue with $25K win for George Washington

Thursday, July 5, 2012

ATLANTA – The 4th of July celebration continues for George Washington. The Macon man won $25,000 playing Red Hot Cherries Thursday morning.

“It feels wonderful,” said Washington, 51.

Broadway Food Mart, located at 1610 Broadway in Macon, sold the top prize ticket.

Washington screamed when he discovered that he won.

He doesn’t have immediate plans for his windfall.

“I’m going to try to save some of it,” he said.

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.
