Gibsons couple in disbelief about being ‘Set for Life’


Gerry and Jeannette (Bev) Drombolis say winning $675,000 on Set for Life still hasn’t sunk in!

“I keep looking at the ticket and I still can’t believe it,” exclaimed Gerry. “It will probably feel real when we put the cheque in the bank.”

The Gibsons couple shared the big news with their sons who were equally shocked. 

“Our youngest son’s first reaction was, ‘shut the front door,’” laughed Bev.

Now they’re ‘Set for Life’, the couple plans to do some long awaited home improvements.

“We’ve lived in the same house for almost 40 years,” smiled Bev. “It’s definitely time for some home renovations!”

The winning Set for Life ticket was purchased at the Lotto Centre in Sunnycrest Mall in Gibsons.
