A New Boat vs. A New Kitchen: Tough Choices Ahead for Powell River BC 50/50 Winner

Powell River Winner

Keith Blunden is at a crossroads about what to do with his $35,000 BC 50/50 windfall: to purchase a boat or upgrade his kitchen.

“I would like to get a boat, but my wife wants to update the kitchen,” he explained. “I told her we already have a kitchen, but we don’t have a boat.”

The Powell River resident purchased his ticket for the December 12, 2021 draw from the Grasshopper Pub on Sunshine Coast Highway and realized a few days after the draw that he was a winner.

“I didn’t know I won until days later when I saw there was a winner in Powell River, which is when I checked my ticket. I was in disbelief!”

On how it feels to be a lottery winner?

“Shocking in a nice way.”
