A New Family Home Planned for Sooke Lotto 6/49 Winner


For Cinnamon Lennox, winning the lottery puts a greater emphasis on life. “I want to stay alive and enjoy the money,” she jested.

The Sooke, B.C. resident matched all 10 numbers in the Lotto 6/49 Guaranteed Prize Draw held January 1, 2019 to win the $1 million prize.

Her future plan is to buy some land and build a new home for her kids, her father, and cousin. “It’s going to be a dream house,” she exclaimed. “There will definitely be a hot tub and a pool, and a nice view, of course.”

In the immediate, however, Lennox has a couple of things on her bucket list. “I’m going to buy a late model Corvette. I love those, but it doesn’t have to be new. We will stay in a nice hotel and then take the kids to Kobe Steak House so they can watch the chef prepare the food right in front of them. We will take it easy from there,” she added.

Lennox purchased her winning ticket at the Pharmasave on Sooke Road. “I was at home and checked the ticket with my family. My dad was in denial, so we went to the store and scanned it there,” she said.

“It really is an overwhelming blessing to be able to have security for your family,” she added.

“There will be less stress and a lot more enjoying life. It’s a huge change for us.”
