It was all Halloween treats for West Kelowna ‘Set for Life’ winner


Debbie Davies of West Kelowna received a memorable treat this Halloween, and it was no candy bar.

“I was scratching my Set for Life ticket on Halloween night,” recalled Davies. “It showed I won, and it was the best Halloween treat ever!”

Davies won $675,000 playing Set for Life, and immediately called her family over for a big celebration.

She plans to put some money towards her retirement, and then patiently wait for the next baseball season to start.

“My ultimate goal is to take a trip down the East Coast and watch a bunch of baseball games!”

The winning Set for Life ticket was purchased at the Real Canadian Superstore in Westbank.

Every time a Scratch & Win ticket is purchased in B.C., it funds programs across the province. Learn more here. BCLC offers socially responsible gambling entertainment while generating income to benefit all British Columbians. Remember, play for fun, not to make money. For more information visit
