Dooly County woman posts $100K lottery win

Friday, March 8, 2013

ATLANTA – A Dooly County woman has linked herself to a lucky lottery win. Neenicho Lester of Pinehurst played the Georgia Lottery instant game $100,000 Monte Carlo and won a $100,000 top prize.

“I went to stop by a store in Perry,” said Lester, 33. “I scratched it in the store.”

Mini Food #0065, 1501 Sam Nunn Blvd. in Perry, sold the winning ticket.

“I was shocked and happy at the same time,” she said.

A consumer safety inspector, Lester does not have immediate plans for her windfall.

Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corp. has returned more than $14 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 1.2 million 4-year-olds have attended the statewide, voluntary prekindergarten program.
