RALEIGH, N.C. – A Winston-Salem mother who won $100,000 playing the Cold Hard Cash game says she plans to use the money to support children's education.

Lucila Santana says she was in High Point visiting her brother when she bought the lucky $5 ticket at the Kivett Drive Grocery on Oneka Street.

"My children are in school so I like to help in any way I can," Santana said, "It makes me feel good to know lottery money helps education."

After state and federal taxes were withheld, Santana received a check for $69, 201. As of Tuesday morning, officials say only one more top prize of $100,000 remains to be claimed in the game.

Santana also wants to make home improvements and save for the future.
