Instead of cake, a Gainesville woman was surprised with cash on her 48th birthday. Renae Smith, who celebrated her special day Sept. 1, won a $100,000 top prize on the Georgia Lottery instant game Cash Harvest.
A Harvest of riches indeed.
Smith¹s husband, Byron, went to Chevron Food Mart, in Cummings, Ga., purchased the ticket and handed it to her at home as a birthday gift.
“My mouth hung open,” she said, after scratching.
The grandmother of five described her special day as “incredible” and plans to pay off bills with a portion of her prize.
“It was already a wonderful day,” she shared.
“This put it over the top.”
