MIDWAY, GA (WTOC) - The Georgia Lottery presented an oversized check for $500,000 to Sandra Smith of Midway Tuesday morning. Smith purchased her $10 scratch off ticket from the Lake George Get-N-Go on Limerick Road.

She says she use the money to pay some bills, but will also donate some to charities, one of which will be for her friend's son battling brain cancer.

"It's more than I could imagine, a few nights ago I was on my knees praying and God saw fit to give it to me," said Smith. "Just payin off my bills, helping my children out, not buying new cars and all that, not going to waste it."

Sandra said if she did splurge, she would think about some new kitchen appliances.
