Thanksgiving Brings Jesup Resident Turkey and $250,000

Tuesday, December 6, 2005

ATLANTA – Jesup resident Carol Fulghum decided to bring Thanksgiving dinner to her daughter, Holly, at work. On the way she picked up a $250,000 Cash Zone instant game ticket. The ticket turned out to be worth $250,000.

Ms. Fulghum was speechless when she returned home and realized that she’d won the game’s top prize.

The 47-year-old plans to use her winnings to pay bills and buy her daughter a car.

Peaches Food Store #0011, located at 315 Crispen Blvd. in Brunswick, sold Ms. Fulghum her 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 including Georgia's HOPE Scholarship Program and Georgia's Prekindergarten Program. More than 900,000 students have received HOPE Scholarships, and more than 700,000 4-year-olds have attended the statewide, voluntary prekindergarten program.
