Comox Winner

Shirley Burke definitely has a skip in her step after picking up a winning BC/49 ticket from the October 27, 2021 draw worth a breezy $75,000.

The Comox resident purchased her ticket from Quality Foods on Guthrie Road and was there when she discovered the exciting news.

“I found out I won and couldn’t believe it,” she recalled. “My first thought was, ‘What am I going to do with this win?’”

Burke says she would like to invest some of her prize and hasn’t quite decided what to do with the rest, yet.

On how it feels to win $75,000?

“Unbelievable.”
