WOODSTOCK, Ga. -- Woodstock resident Cheryl Bullard has multiple reasons to celebrate.

In addition to her recent birthday, Bullard found out that she won a $50,079 jackpot prize by matching all five winning numbers in the July 17 Georgia Lottery Fantasy 5 drawing.

She discovered she'd won when she checked the results on the Georgia Lottery's website.

"I had to look twice," she said. "I am elated."

Bullard, 58, works as a self-employed consultant. She bought her winning ticket at Trip Stop on Bells Ferry Road in Woodstock and claimed her money at the Georgia Lottery District Office in Dalton.

"I want to go out to dinner, go on a small shopping spree and put the rest toward savings," she said when asked how she plans to spend the prize.

Winning numbers from the July 17 Fantasy 5 drawing were 2-9-13-17-24.
