Winning the 50/50 lottery is such a great surprise. I’m happy I could contribute to the foundation and winning money on top of that is just amazing. I’m excited to put the money towards a Christmas family reunion trip in California this year. Thank you so much!

I’m still in shock that I won!  This prize couldn’t have come at a better time, I will be on Maternity leave soon, the prize is going be a big help!  I’m hoping my family can take a Vacation with some of the money.
