Lumby woman caps off ‘emotional’ summer with $1 million Lotto 6/49 win13/09/2016
Sarah Ross has had what she describes as an emotional summer. Her family’s home burned down a few months ago, and they have been living in a rental unit since.
However, Ross’ summer is ending a positive note after winning the Guaranteed $1 Million Prize on the September 7, 2016 Lotto 6/49 draw.
“It’s been an emotional time,” said Ross. “Our family and community have been so supportive throughout the summer. We’re very thankful.”
Ross says she was on ‘cloud nine’ after checking her ticket and quickly called her husband with the amazing news. She’s excited to tell her children next about the big win.
“The first things I bought after winning Lotto 6/49 were stuffed animals for my kids,” laughed Ross. “This is exciting because when the time comes we can help them with university!”
The winning ticket was purchased at the Pharmasave on 30th Avenue in Vernon.
