Friday the 13th was a lucky day for one Richland woman.

That's the day Audrey Harwick won $50,000 playing Washington Millionaire VI Scratch.

"My birthday month has been very good to me," Harwick told lottery officials after she claimed her prize.

Harwick told them she has big plans for her winnings. She's planning to indulge her passion for travel. On her list is her 20th cruise, already scheduled for this winter.

She's also planning to buy a motorhome and travel to places from New Orleans to New Mexico, visiting parts of the country she hasn't seen. Harwick also has on her list seeing Georgia beaches, going to Disneyworld with the family and driving through the Northeast in the fall to watch the leaves change colors.

"All of these things are waiting for me to capture. It's time to go out there and do it," she said.

Harwick is a frequent lottery player, and this is her biggest win yet, she said. There are still seven $50,000 and two $1 million prizes remaining for Washington Millionaire VI Scratch.
