DUNN, N.C. -

A Dunn woman has won $1 million with a scratch off lottery ticket.

The winning Ruby Red 7's instant ticket, purchased for $10, was sold at the Kangaroo Express on Long Branch Road in Dunn.

Dianna Sills, chose to take the lump sum of $600,000. After taxes she'll get about $408,006.

"The big thing I thought I'd always like to do is buy a house at the beach," Sills said in a written release. "That was my dream."

Since the lottery began, Harnett County education programs have received more than $28.7 million in lottery funds. By law, those funds pay for teachers' salaries in grades K-3, school construction, prekindergarten programs for at-risk four-year-olds, and college scholarships and financial aid based on need.

To date, the North Carolina Education Lottery has raised more than $2.6 billion for these initiatives statewide.
