Harris resident wakes up $500,000 richer
It’s an email Thomas Kennedy won’t soon forget.
The Harris resident woke up the morning after the Oct. 6 DAILY GRAND draw to find a note in his inbox from Subscription Spot telling him he was half a million dollars richer.
“I received an email saying I won a prize, but it didn’t say which prize, so I checked my subscription account,” explained Kennedy.
Kennedy was in disbelief when he opened his account and saw that he had won a whopping $500,000 by matching five of the five winning numbers. The winning numbers were 14, 19, 30, 38, 48 and grand number 4.
Kennedy has a few plans for his windfall, including earmarking some for tuition.
“I’m going to invest in myself,” he explained. “First, I want to go back to school and learn a new trade!”
“This is exactly what I needed right now; it feels amazing!” he added with a smile.
Sask Lotteries is the main fundraiser for more than 12,000 sport, culture and recreation groups in communities across Saskatchewan.
