ATLANTA – A Morrow hairstylist is sitting pretty with a $5,000 Georgia Lottery win. Debora Bivens was randomly selected in the Georgia's Millionaire Club weekly drawing held March 2.
"My brother saw the drawing and notified me," said Bivens, who was in her car at the time. "I thought he was pulling my leg because he is a jokester."
Bivens, 50, has three children and 10 grandchildren. In addition to styling hair, she also works as a coating technician for an optical lab.
According to Bivens, she will use her winnings to pay bills.
"I may also take my mother and sister on a little trip," she shared.
Georgia's Millionaire Club weekly drawings are held in conjunction with the instant game Georgia's $500 Million Club. Each weekly Georgia's Millionaire Club winner will receive $5,000 and become a finalist in the Extra Chance $10 Million Grand Prize Drawing.
Players can mail in a non-winning Georgia's $500 Million Club ticket to enter the Georgia's Millionaire Club drawings. Complete the back of the ticket, add a stamp, and mail the ticket as a postcard. The Georgia Lottery will conduct a weekly drawing from all entries received that week. Weekly drawings will be broadcast each Friday as a part of the Cash 3 evening drawings.
Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corporation has returned over $8.8 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 1 million students have received HOPE, and more than 790,000 4-year-olds have attended the statewide, voluntary prekindergarten program.
