Bank Executive Cashes In $75,000 Mustang Money Top Prize

Sunday, July 24, 2005

ATLANTA- Federal Credit Union executive vice president Dawana Gainey plays Georgia Lottery games because she believes that there are always winners out there. Mrs. Gainey became one of those winners when she won the $75,000 top prize playing Mustang Money, an instant game.

Mrs. Gainey has always considered herself to be a lucky person. However, she was in a state of disbelief when she discovered that she had a winning ticket. She scratched the lucky ticket while sitting in her car.

The Matthews resident plans to use her winnings to travel to Cancun, Mexico, for a second honeymoon with her husband, James.

The winning ticket was purchased at Sprint Food #0722. The store is located at 202 and 204 Hwy 1 N. bypass in Louisville.

Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corporation has returned over $7.6 billion to the state of Georgia for education. All Georgia Lottery profits go to pay for specific educational programs. These include Georgia’s HOPE scholarship program; a statewide, voluntary pre-kindergarten program for four-year-olds; and a wide range of technological and capital upgrades for the state’s schools, technical institutes, colleges, universities and public libraries.
