$350K win sparks excitement for Pike Co. woman

Thursday, August 1, 2013

ATLANTA – One Pike County woman is swept up in the excitement of winning a massive prize from the Georgia Lottery. Theresa Anglin of Meansville won a $350,000 top prize playing the instant game Elegant Riches.

Anglin, 54, was redeeming free tickets from other instant games when she selected her lucky find at Upson Superette, 1038 Atwater Road in Thomaston.

“I got home, scratched it and realized I’d won,” she said. “It was hard to believe to begin with.”

With one adult daughter and a granddaughter, Anglin is happy over her windfall.

She intends to purchase property with her winnings.

Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corp. has returned more than $14.6 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 1.6 million students have received HOPE, and more than 1.2 million 4-year-olds have attended the statewide, voluntary prekindergarten program.
