DALTON, GA (WRCB) – A Roswell grandmother has a quarter million new ways to spoil her grandkids.
Geraldine McDonald, 71, was celebrating her granddaughter's high school graduation when she learned that her May 28th Mega Millions ticket was a $250,000 winner. McDonald says her winning numbers came from a combination of her and her husband Nathan's birthdays.
"I couldn't believe it," McDonald told Georgia Lottery officials. "Birthdays are very lucky indeed."
The mother of three and grandmother of six says she plans to spend the money on her family. "I want to share with my children and my granddaughter who is going to college," she said.
Winning numbers from the May 28 Mega Millions drawing were: 3-11-20-29-39 and the Mega Ball was 26. RaceTrac #0213, located at 1907 Chattanooga Road in Dalton, sold the winning ticket.
