Twelve women from a small town in Michigan's upper peninsula have claimed a $12.7 million Classic Lotto 47 jackpot.

Michigan Lottery officials said members of the Island Dreamers lottery club made the six-hour trip from Newberry to Lansing in a stretch Hummer limousine on Tuesday to claim their prize.

Club member Debra Cummings said she doesn't "remember anything after checking the first two numbers" on the morning after the July 1 drawing.

The Island Dreamers range in age from 25 years old to 58 years old. The club includes family members and the owner of a Newberry restaurant where each of them work.

The women said a "Lansing or bust" sign was hung in the restaurant's window before they left.

Two men also will share the prize.
