Beautician Sitting Pretty with $160,000 Georgia Gold Win

Tuesday, April 20, 2004

ATLANTA – A nursing home beautician left work and learned that she struck gold. When Jennifer Brown arrived home on Friday (4/16), her husband, James, presented her with a Georgia Gold instant ticket worth $160,000.

Mrs. Brown, 37, says that she kept the top prize winning ticket with her at all times before claiming her prize at the Georgia Lottery Corporation’s Columbus District Office. “I slept and ate with it,” she laughs.

The Browns, who have four children, plan to pay off bills. “We just purchased a new home so that’s going to help us tremendously,” says Mrs. Brown. “Of course, the kids want to go to Disney World.”

The winning ticket was purchased at Billy’s Country Store, located at 25 Harmony Church Rd. in LaGrange. The Browns reside in Roanoke, Ala.

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