Holiday season bright with $500,000 win

LANSING, January 4, 2007 – A very lucky Twin Lakes man is $500,000 richer this holiday season, thanks to the Michigan Lottery’s Holiday Celebration Instant ticket.

The 55-year-old regular Lottery player couldn’t believe his good fortune. After scratching the ticket at work and discovering the good news, he was shaking so badly that his co-worker thought he was having a heart attack!

The prize money will go towards bills, fly fishing trips and cutting down on his work hours.

The winning ticket was purchased at Southtown Car Wash, 832 Robbins Rd., in Grand Haven.

Holiday Celebration is just one of many Michigan Lottery Instant tickets available at nearly 11,000 Lottery retailers statewide.

All proceeds from the Lottery are contributed to the state School Aid Fund which supports kindergarten through 12th grade public education in Michigan. In fiscal year 2006, the contribution was $688 million.
