COLUMBIA, SC (November 26, 2008) – Standing inside Jimmy’s Mini Mart in West Columbia, a Lexington County woman’s tough week ended on a high note. In her hands, she held a winning Jingle Bills instant ticket worth $100,000!
The Lexington County woman, who wishes to keep her identity private, has no immediate plans for the winnings. She says she’s grateful for the winning experience.
“I’m just so proud,” the winner said. “And my family is proud for me.”
