September 19, 2023


Idrissa Brathwaite is an avid snowboarder and mountain biker and after winning $675,000 playing Set for Life, she’ll hopefully have more time to explore the great outdoors.

The Burnaby resident was relaxing at home when she realized she won. “I just stared at the ticket in disbelief and then validated it at the Shopper Drug Mart I purchased it from.”

Brathwaite told “absolutely no one” that she won $675,000, but the secret is out now.

It was a big shock to win Set for Life and Brathwaite is still deciding what’s next — for the most part.

“I would like to take a trip around the world. It’s an incredible feeling!  

Brathwaite purchased the winning ticket at the Shoppers Drug Mart on Lougheed Highway and Willingdon Avenue in Burnaby.
