Surrey Winner

Christian Buron will soon be adding his own unique style to the house of his dreams after scoring $675,000 playing Set for Life. 

The Surrey fashion designer purchased his ticket from Food Folks on 176A Street and was filling up with gas when he saw a poster of a lottery winner which inspired him to purchase a ticket. 

“It said, ‘Anyone can win, and you could be next,’” he recalled. “I thought that could be me one day and it finally happened. My dream was always to buy a house for me and my family.”

Buron scanned his ticket at home after work one night, with the Lotto! app.

“I scratched it and scanned it right away and saw I won. My first thought was getting a house.”

So far, Buron has only shared the news with his wife.

“She thought I was joking at first and made me call BCLC right away,” he said.

Buron said he plans to celebrate his win over a nice family dinner and wants to take the kids out to do something fun.

“Exciting, very, very exciting! I don’t think I slept for three days after finding out,” he added.
