COLUMBIA, SC (April 24, 2012) – Georgianna Rosendary has a big family she knows will be all too willing to help her spend her $100,000 lottery winnings.

The North Charleston mom with two boys and two girls, told lottery officials she won $40 once and her daughter called it “her money.”

That’s not happening this time.

“This is my money,” Rosendary said. “I’m not saying anything to anyone about winning.”

Rosendary and her husband plan to enjoy the cash from having one of their non-winning Jeep® scratch-off tickets selected in the Lottery’s Jeep® Vehicle Second-Chance Promotion. Out of more than 206,939 entries received, her ticket was picked to win the $100,000 cash prize.

She couldn’t be happier.

“I might have to call the children and tell them,” hedged the devoted mother.

Since the start of the Lottery in 2002, more than one million college scholarships and grants have been awarded to South Carolina’s students. In all, more than $2.7 BILLION has been transferred to support educational programs in the Palmetto State.
