A group of Vanderbilt University Medical Center employees will share a $50,000 Powerball prize, lottery officials announced Monday.  

The group of 11 co-workers began playing together “two or three” months ago. The group’s representative, Dana Fulton, a nurse, claimed the group’s prize on Friday.

“We’ve just started playing together, and I guess it paid off pretty quick,” she said.

Lottery officials said the group matched 4 of the 5 white numbers drawn, plus the red Powerball number on October 11.
