ATLANTA – Kathleen Floyd’s excitement is in overdrive since being selected as a winner of a 2013 Jeep Wrangler, taxes paid, from the Georgia Lottery. Floyd, a Dawsonville resident, played the instant game Jeep Outdoor Adventure and entered her ticket into the Second Chance Drawing where she was selected as a winner.
The lucky winner and her husband, Marshall, anticipate going off the beaten path in their new automobile.
Georgia Lottery representatives presented Floyd, 49, with the keys to her new Jeep Wrangler and an oversized check for $25,000 for customization Tuesday at Troncalli Jeep, 818 Atlanta Highway, Cumming.
“We were surprised, and it is exciting because we’d been talking about getting a Jeep,” Floyd said.
