ATLANTA – One Woodstock woman is celebrating a win from the Georgia Lottery. Cheryl Bullard won a $50,079 jackpot prize from matching all five winning numbers from the July 17 Fantasy 5 drawing.
Bullard, 58, claimed her prize recently at the Georgia Lottery District Office in Dalton.
Trip Stop, 6511 Bells Ferry Road in Woodstock, sold the winning Quik Pik ticket.
A self-employed consultant, Bullard checked the results of the drawing on the Georgia Lottery’s website.
“I had to look twice,” she said. “I am elated.”
Having celebrated a birthday earlier this month, the lucky winner plans to treat herself.
“I want to go out to dinner, go on a small shopping spree and put the rest toward savings,” Bullard shared.
Winning numbers from the July 17 Fantasy 5 drawing were: 2-9-13-17-24.
