Macon Resident Wins $50,000 Playing Jumbo Bucks Classic

Sunday, July 24, 2005

ATLANTA- Macon resident Catrina Brown received a pleasant surprise when she scratched her Jumbo Bucks Classic ticket. Jumbo Bucks Classic is a Georgia Lottery instant game and Ms. Brown won the $50,000 top prize.

“I screamed on the inside,” says Ms. Brown.

The mother of four scratched her ticket in the store’s parking lot and the first people she told were her children. The children shared in her excitement and promptly began planning how to spend the winnings. “They started calling out items that they wanted,” Ms. Brown explained.

Ms. Brown plans to use her winnings to do something special for her children and to pay bills.

The winning ticket was purchased at Fine Fair Grocery. The store is located at 3741 Napier Ave. in Macon.

Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corporation has returned over $7.6 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.
