COLUMBIA, SC (December 20, 2016) – A Honea Path couple celebrated their 34th wedding anniversary with a $250,000 lottery win.

The timing of the win couldn’t have any been better for the husband.

“I hadn’t gotten my wife a gift yet,” he confessed.

She liked the winning Cash Reserve ticket her husband purchased at the Vgo Food Mart on S. Main St. in Donalds.

She wants to take a trip, and he’s thinking about starting his own business.

The Honea Path winner claimed the last $250,000 top prize in the $10 Cash Reserve game. The odds of winning $250,000 were 1 in 696,000.

For selling the claimed ticket, Vgo Food Mart in Donalds received a commission of $2,500.
