November 7 Jackpot Claimed by Local Sioux Lookout Resident
An impromptu ticket purchase at a local Legion meat raffle was without buyer's remorse for Cathy Bowen from Sioux Lookout, who took home $4,400 after lucky ticket number, HH-6079493, was drawn during the November 7th Sioux Lookout Meno Ya Win Health Centre (SLMHC) Foundation 50/50 draw. Our winner took a bit of time to come forward to claim the win as this purchase method is not the norm for her she said. "I usually buy my tickets online and so I was checking my email for my tickets." After a coworker told her that the lucky winning ticket was sold in person and that she should be looking for a piece of paper, Cathy remembered the slip full of ticket numbers that she had tucked into her wallet after buying tickets at the Legion event. The rest is history as they say. Cathy is a regular Foundation 50/50 lottery supporter since it's beginnings and we are grateful for the ongoing support!
