Powerball jackpot rises to $250 million

Powerball jackpot rises to $250 million

ATLANTA – Powerball has soared to staggering heights. Wednesday’s jackpot has jumped to $250 million after no one matched all the winning numbers in Saturday’s drawing.

One Georgia Lottery player won $10,000 in Saturday’s drawing. The lucky ticket was purchased in Pooler.

The Powerball jackpot has been growing since Dec. 28 and has rolled 12 times.

 Powerball offers two payment options: the $250 million jackpot prize paid over 29 years in 30 graduated payments, or the cash option, which is approximately $156 million.

 Powerball tickets are $2 per play.

 As with all other Georgia Lottery games, proceeds from Powerball will benefit education in the state of Georgia.

Little Hands, Big Hearts

Little Hands, Big Hearts

This holiday season, many children volunteered to help make sure children in need had gifts to open on Christmas morning. Children of all ages enjoyed Christmas shopping and many of our local Christian schools kindly adopted a family to sponsor for each classroom of students.

Natalie Kandul (10 years old) and Kaitlyn Lauria (9 years old) organized a toy drive all by themselves. They made the flyers and distributed them in their neighborhood with a parent’s supervision. Their hard work paid off when they were able to collect over 50 toys!

Boy Scouts Troop #205 in Alpharetta collected diapers, batteries, baby wipes and stocking stuffers for Act Together children.
