Congrats to Fred!

The weekend started early for Fred Cornett of Lake City, who claimed a $200,000 Powerball prize Friday at the Lottery’s Nashville headquarters. Fred didn’t say what he would do with the winnings, won by matching five white balls from the drawing on April 28, but he was quick to say he couldn’t wait to put the money in the bank! Fred purchased his ticket at Kenjo Market in Louisville, TN. Congratulations!
