LAWRENCEVILLE MAN LANDS $750K LOTTERY WIN
October 1, 2016

A quick stop at the convenience store has earned one man a peachy prize. John Brannon of Lawrenceville won $750,000 playing the Georgia Lottery’s Silver Peach game.

Brannon, 36, decided to stop and buy tickets after leaving work for the day.

He purchased two Silver Peach tickets and scored his lucky prize after scratching the second.

“I’m still in shock,” Brannon said. “I don’t think the feeling has really hit me yet.”

Exxon Food Mart, located at 2094 Lawrenceville-Suwanee Road in Suwanee, sold the winning ticket. 

Brannon will use a portion of his prize to purchase a new home.

Georgia Lottery officials presented him with a ceremonial check at the store Tuesday.

Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corp. has returned more than $17.6 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.
