Meet the Winners
November Grand Prize Winner, Heather Lonsway won $39,588
Heather heard about the 50/50 through the radio and because the draw date was on her birthday she knew she had to purchase tickets. It was also a great opportunity for Heather to support her hospital.
“Its important to support your hospital and its equipment needs because you want the equipment to be there in case you ever need it.”
Other than paying some bills, Heather was still thinking through what she would do with her big win.
December Grand Prize Winner Heather Leu won $34,842
Heather kept seeing ads online about the 50/50 and decided the universe was trying to send her a message that she should get some tickets. She purchased $20 worth of tickets and kind of forgot about them.
When we called to tell Heather she was the winner she initially thought we were joking or that maybe she had won an early bird prize. She was stunned to hear she won $34,842! She planned to spend her winnings on some house renovations.
January Grand Prize Winner, Stacy Crown won $37,588
Stacy lives in Woodstock and is a Nurse Practitioner at Woodingford Lodge in Woodstock. She has a strong connection to Woodstock Hospital (WH)-- she was a student here, did her nursing placement here and worked here as a nurse for four years. Plus, her mom, brother, sister-in-law, aunt, and best friend are all nurses at WH.
Stacy plans to spend her winnings on house renos, savings for her son, paying down her mortgage, and going on an incredible honeymoon (when travel is allowed) since her wedding was cancelled last spring.
February Grand Prize Winner, Theresa Post won $63,995
Theresa grew up in Woodstock and now lives in Tillsonburg. She’s been buying tickets for the past few months to support our hospital because she believes it is a great cause. Theresa said she never wins anything, so she couldn’t believe she actually won $63,995.
Theresa has a few ideas on how she plans to spend some of her winnings. Put some money toward her mortgage and do some house renovations and then going on an incredible honeymoon. She can’t wait until she can travel again and her top places to go are: Holland, Germany, and Niagara Falls.
