On December 27, 2015 over $140,000 in prizes were drawn for the Fort St John Rotary Mega Lottery.

The Rotary Mega Lottery raised and distributed funds for local Fort St John clubs ranging from dance and sports clubs to childcare and public centres. This year the Mega Lottery sold a total of 10,157 tickets with an additional 5,579 tickets sold in the Fifty/Fifty draw.

The Fifty/Fifty draw raised $55,790 with the winner of the draw, Michelle Turnbull, receiving $27,895 and the other $27,895 going back to local participating clubs.

This year’s grand prizewinner, Angie Alde, can now choose from a 2015 Convertible Chevrolet Camaro or $40,000 in cash.

The second prizewinner, Maureen Plews, won a 2015 RZR 900 XP
