Homerville Woman Wins $50,000

Tuesday, November 15, 2005

ATLANTA – Charlyne Poole, a resident of Homerville, is celebrating a jumbo Georgia Lottery win. Mrs. Poole played Jumbo Bucks Classic and won the instant game’s $50,000 top prize.

Quick Stop #0001, located at 812 E. Screven St. in Quitman, sold the lucky ticket. Mrs. Poole scratched her ticket shortly after leaving the store.

“I started screaming!” the 32-year-old exclaims. “I jumped back in the car and ran back to the store to make sure I was looking at it right.”

Mrs. Poole, a mother of four, immediately shared the news with her husband Robert. She says the family will use her Georgia Lottery winnings to “pay bills and go Christmas shopping.”

Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corporation has returned over $7.8 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 900,000 students have received HOPE Scholarships, and more than 700,000 4-year-olds have attended the statewide, voluntary prekindergarten program.
