“Holy Cow we Won!”: Terrace Residents Score $200K Scratch & Win Prize

February 10, 2023


Debra Dorsch and Joseph (Daniel) Belanger are now $200,000 richer after landing the top prize from BCLC’s Premier Fortune Scratch & Win ticket. 

The Terrace residents purchased the ticket from the Husky on Lakelse Avenue and Dorsch was the first to discover the good news upon scratching the ticket at home.

“I immediately texted Dan saying, ’Holy cow we won,’” Dorsch recalled. “It was exhilarating!”

“Of course, it was great,” recalled Belanger of his initial reaction. “What would you feel? To confirm it was real we went back to the Husky.”

The pair celebrated its unexpected prize over a sushi dinner and said they have a few “responsible” plans for their win.

“I want to live debt free and be a responsible adult,” Dorsch said with a chuckle.

“I want to pay off my mortgage,” Belanger explained.
