Afternoon walk nets stunning $400K prize in Alpharetta

Wednesday, July 11, 2012

ATLANTA – A Gwinnett County daycare worker has stumbled upon a shiny green prize from the Georgia Lottery during an afternoon walk. Patsy Wehby of Duluth won a $400,000 top prize playing the instant game 20X The Money.

Wehby, 56, claimed her prize recently at the Georgia Lottery District Office in Duluth.

The mother of three was out for a walk when she stepped into Kroger #0495, 12870 State Highway 9 in Alpharetta, where she purchased her lucky ticket.

“I was looking crazy,” she said. “I was crying. I called my daughter. It was a good day for me.”

Although dazed, Wehby intends to “sit down and collect myself.”

“My practical husband, Robert, will keep me grounded,” she noted.

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.
