Last week, someone put a winning scratch-off lottery ticket in the collection plate at the Cathedral of Prayer church in Columbus, Georgia. No one knows who. The ticket was an $80,000 winner!
Gloria Rodgers handles the finances for the church. She says that they took it down to the local Georgia lottery office and claimed the ticket over the weekend.
She also says that they’ve received winning lottery tickets before, but this is the biggest one.
The winning ticket came at a good time. Three weeks ago, some burglars broke into the church and stole some copper wire; which knocked out their air conditioning. With this donation, the church can get it fixed.
