McIntyre Resident Brings Home $75,000 Lottery Win

Thursday, November 3, 2005

ATLANTA – McIntyre resident Stephanie Thornton enjoys playing new Georgia Lottery instant games. Recently, she bought a $75,000 Cash Bonanza ticket and won the game’s $75,000 top prize.

Mrs. Thornton was standing in the store where the ticket was purchased when she found out that she was a winner. “I showed it to people in the store to make sure,” the 32-year-old explained.

Mrs. Thornton plans to buy a new car and enjoy the remainder of her winnings with her husband, John, and their son.

J & P Food Store, located at 2610 Irwinton Rd. in Milledgeville, sold the winning ticket.

Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corporation has returned over $7.8 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.
