Construction manager builds excitement over $250,000 win in Riceboro

Thursday, April 19, 2007

ATLANTA - A construction manager is all smiles after winning $250,000 in the April 6 Mega Million drawing. Jeffery Rose, 52, was traveling through Georgia when he stopped for peanuts and pralines and purchased the winning ticket.

He bought his lucky numbers at Clyde's Market #30, 20880 S. Coastal Highway in Riceboro, selecting the Quik Pik option. Winning numbers from the April 6 Mega Millions drawing were: 24-32-34-36-39 and the Mega Ball was 6.

Rose found out about his winnings a week after he purchased the ticket. He checked the winning numbers on the Georgia Lottery Web site.

"I didn't say anything for about four to five minutes," said Rose, a resident of Coraopolis, Pa. "I hadn't thought about checking it before now."

According to Rose, he will use his winnings to take a trip to Switzerland, pay off bills and buy a house.

"I am very happy," he exclaimed.

Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corporation has returned over $9 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.
