Alabama state parks worker wins Cadillac

Friday, May 11, 2012

ATLANTA – An Alabama state parks worker has opened the gates to receive a brand new crossover utility vehicle courtesy of the Georgia Lottery. Vickie Blackburn of Mentone, Ala., played the instant game Cadillac Riches and won a 2012 Cadillac.

Georgia Lottery representatives presented Blackburn with the keys to her new 2012 Cadillac SRX Crossover Friday at Cloudland Trade Center where she purchased her lucky ticket.

Cloudland Trade Center is located at 12310 Highway 48 in Cloudland.

“I was just really calm. Those in the store were all but turning cartwheels,” said Blackburn, 54.

She and her husband, Albert, have two adult children.

“I’m fine. I’m happy,” she exclaimed.

Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corp. has returned more than $13.4 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 Pre-K Program. More than 1.4 million students have received HOPE, and more than 1.1 million 4-year-olds have attended the statewide, voluntary prekindergarten program.
