DAVIE COUNTY, N.C. (WGHP) — Part of his $1 million Extreme Cash prize will help Pharris Frank, of Advance, and his fiancé pay for their wedding, according to an NC Education Lottery news release.

Frank, a carpenter, bought his winning $25 ticket from Rivertrail Mercantile on U.S. 64 East in Advance.

He claimed his prize Thursday and had the choice of taking his prize as an annuity of $50,000 a year for 20 years or as a lump sum of $600,000.

Frank chose the $600,000 lump sum. After state and federal tax withholdings, he took home $424,507.

“It’s just like, ‘Wow!” Frank said. “We’re going to save most of it.”
