Tuesday, March 12, 2013

ATLANTA – An Augusta housekeeper is all smiles and has a lightened load with a $50,000 prize from the Georgia Lottery. Elizabeth Barron, 60, played the popular instant game Jumbo Bucks Classic and won a $50,000 top prize.

Barron won her prize Monday and claimed it at the Georgia Lottery’s District Office in Augusta.

Wally’s, 4250 Windsor Spring Road in Hephzibah, sold the winning ticket.

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.
