Giveaway makes a Christmas

December 13, 2005

Thomasville, Georgia-- A Christmas giveaway in Thomasville has benefits on two fronts. One lucky woman gets Christmas presents, and a community center gets a boost.

Michelle Jeffcoat won more than $2500 in gifts Tuesday morning in a raffle to benefit the Thomasville Community Resource Center.

Jeffcoat says she bought only four tickets and was surprised she won. "Oh my gosh, I was so excited. I could not believe I was the person who won. I've never won anything in my life. I thought it was a prank actually," she says.

About $5,000 was raised for the resource center. The money will go toward scholarships for children who attend its summer programs.
