HOMERVILLE GREAT-GRANDMOTHER WINS FESTIVE $100K PRIZE
January 3, 2016
A Homerville great-grandmother has won a generous prize from the Georgia Lottery. Monique Vinson, 57, won a $100,000 prize playing the holiday-themed instant game Sparkling Surprise.

Vinson’s husband, Robert, purchased the ticket at Argyle Food Mart, 6366 Main St. in Argyle.

“My husband had gone for milk. He bought a couple of tickets and gave me a few,” she explained.
Scratching the ticket while at home, Vinson couldn’t believe her discovery.

“We’re going to pay off our mortgage and other bills,” she shared.

A bank teller, Vinson and her husband have four adult children, 11 grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

The lucky winner claimed her prize Dec. 1 at the Georgia Lottery District Office in Tifton.

Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corp. has returned more than $16.7 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 1.7 million students have received HOPE, and more than 1.4 million 4-year-olds have attended the statewide, voluntary prekindergarten program.
