Congratulations to Victor Hubley of Dawson Creek, winner of the $5,000 early bird draw for this year's Rotary Mega Lottery.
Hubley's winning ticket was sold by the Mile 0 Figure Skating Club, and was drawn Thursday afternoon during a live stream at the Northern Grand Hotel in Fort St. John.
There is $70,000 in prizes up for grabs in this year’s Mega Lottery, with proceeds going to support the operations of 20 non-profit groups in Fort St. John, Dawson Creek, and Chetwynd. The Mega Lottery has raised more than $2.5 million for Peace region clubs since 2003.
"It's great to see the community involvement in a year where fundraising is a challenge for many non-profits," said Cameron Eggie, President, Rotary Club of Fort St. John. "This lottery has provided a vehicle to ensure vital funds are raised."
There’s still time to get your name in for the Win Big and 50/50 draws happening on Jan. 16, 2021.
This year's Mega Lottery includes a $25,000 grand prize; a second prize of $10,000; and a third prize of $5,000. The 50/50 draw is nearly sold out, with an expected jackpot of $25,000.
Regular tickets are $25 each, and 50/50 tickets are $10 each.
Participating clubs will be selling tickets at Totem Mall in Fort St. John during regular business hours from Friday, Dec. 18, to Thursday, Dec. 24.
Tickets can also be purchased at the Alaska Highway News, or online at rotarymegalottery.org.
