Southern Pines man needed a glass of water after seeing $100,000 win

Timothy Sanders, of Southern Pines, said he had to take a moment and calm himself down after seeing that his $1 Cash 5 ticket won the $100,000 jackpot in Sunday’s drawing.

“My heart was racing,” Sanders said. “I had to put the ticket down and go to the kitchen to get some water before I went back and checked it again.”

Sanders, a 47-year-old plumber, bought his lucky Quick Pick ticket from Southern Pines Mobile Mart on Central Drive.

“I was really, really excited,” Sanders said. “I really was shocked.”

Sanders arrived at lottery headquarters Monday to collect his prize and, after required state and federal tax withholdings, took home $71,010. He said he has a good idea where some of the prize money will go.

“I’ve been wanting a truck forever,” Sanders. “Probably a Chevrolet.”

Sanders is the third person in Moore County to win a lottery jackpot this month.

Steven Richter, of Jackson Springs, and Samphant Vanamathi, of Pinehurst, have also won $100,000.
