In a news release Monday, the Georgia Lottery Corp. announced a ticket worth $400,000 was sold in Buckhead.
Harris, 68, celebrated her birthday earlier this month and is retired from the U.S. Postal Service.
“I’ll pay off some bills,” she said in a statement. “More than likely I’ll work with a charity that helps children.”
Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery has returned more than $13.8 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 pre-K program.
More than 1.4 million students have received HOPE, and more than 1.2 million 4-year-olds have attended the statewide, voluntary prekindergarten program.
