$1 million Lotto 6/49 winners ready to give out big thank-yous


Jonathan and Theresa Moleski have overcome many challenges over the last few years, which makes winning the Guaranteed $1 Million Prize in the June 4, 2016 Lotto 6/49 draw that much sweeter.

“We’ve had a really hard few years due to health issues,” said an emotional Jonathan. “I’m grateful because this win allows us to give big thank-yous to the people who helped us in our time in need.”

This win will also allow the Delta couple to grow Theresa’s budding art business.

“I’m going to invest in my art and promote my company,” exclaimed Theresa. “We’re going to be able to breathe a little easier, walk a little taller and start enjoying life again!”

The new millionaires plan to eventually celebrate their win and will soak in as much excitement as they can.

“Winning Lotto 6/49 rocks,” exclaimed Theresa. “This win will make a huge difference in our lives and will allow us to live a better life.”

The winning ticket was purchased at the lottery kiosk in Richmond Centre Mall.
