Abbotsford Set for Life Winner Plans to Travel in Style

05/02/2018

Abbotsford’s Terrence Brett had just come home from grocery shopping when he decided to scratch his Set for Life ticket. When he discovered he had won $675,000, he left the groceries on the kitchen counter and headed straight out to a retailer to check the ticket.

“When I got home, my wife was a little annoyed that I left the kitchen in a mess,” recalled Brett. “But I made up for it when I told her I had won big and that we were now ‘Set for Life.’”

Brett is excited to do more travelling with his wife, starting with trips to Mexico and eventually Greece.

“My wife and I love to travel,” he said. “This win means we can splurge and stay in nicer hotels and experience more excursions.”

Brett purchased his winning Set for Life ticket at Petro-Canada, located on Yarrow Central Road in Chilliwack.
