LANSING, July 25, 2006 – A very lucky Harrison woman won a $10,000 prize from the Mega Millions game. Leigh Young matched four white ball numbers and the gold Mega ball to win the prize.
The regular Lottery player picked her own gold Mega ball number and let the computer choose the rest. She’s expecting a baby this fall and plans to save the prize money for the future.
The lucky winning ticket was purchased at The Party Dock, 1470 N. Clare Ave., in Harrison.
