Longtime Sioux Lookout resident claims prize
Sioux Lookout citizen, Allan Lago has claimed the July 22 Sioux Lookout Meno Ya Win Health Centre (SLMHC) Foundation 50/50 jackpot. Lucky number S-5889159 was the ticket that secured the $7,418 prize for the longtime resident.
“I’ve been in Sioux Lookout for 73 years,” said Lago. “My parents were also both born here in the early beginnings of the town.”
Lago purchased his tickets about a month ago. He said, “I always buy them when they first come out. It’s a worthy investment for a good cause.”
Al’s Sports Excellence is celebrating 50 years of business in 2022, and Lago has recently retired, passing the torch to his boys while maintaining some involvement with the family business.
He is uncertain as to what the money will be spent on.
“Being married, I’m sure my wife will have plans for it,” Lago said, laughing.
With having more free time, he hopes to make a trip to Rocky Mountain House, Alberta this fall to visit his daughter and grandchildren.
