ATLANTA- Harlem resident Deborah Keen has found that from time to time she comes upon a lot of luck. One of these times turned out to be when she purchased a Fire & Ice instant game ticket. Mrs. Keen won the game’s $30,000 top prize.
Mrs. Keen was in her car when she realized that she was holding a winning ticket. “I started shaking and I went back into the store and asked the lady to check my ticket,” Mrs. Keen, 38, explained.
The mother of three plans to use her winnings to buy a car and pay bills. She will also enjoy her winnings with her husband, Bradley, and their children.
Harlem Mini Food, located at 175 Milledgeville Rd. in Harlem, sold Mrs. Keen her winning ticket.
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.
