Ayden Woman Wins Kitchen Makeover

A retired school teacher got a hefty check this morning for a kitchen upgrade.

Sandy Matthews of Ayden won the $25,000 grand prize in Food Lion's Kitchen Makeover Sweepstakes.

Matthews says at first she didn't believe she won. The contest was open to all stores in North and South Carolina, and the woman says she only entered once online using her Food Lion MVP card.

Matthews retired last June after teaching for 32 years. She wants to buy a new stove and countertops with her prize winnings.
