FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Another Rotary Mega Lottery has passed, leaving some Peace region residents with extra pocket change.
The grand prize draws for the 2021 Rotary Mega Lottery took place at Totem Mall on Saturday.
Clifford Davis of Rose Prairie took home this year’s top prize of $25,000.
John Fisher of Fort St. John won the $10,000 second prize draw, and Brian Baker of Fort St. John won the $5,000 third prize draw.
The 50/50 draw winner, Nancy Kerr of Dawson Creek, won $18,090.
The early bird winners were drawn in November and December. Karen Rouble and Gwen Zabinksky of Fort St. John each won $5,000.
“Thank you to all our organizers, supporters, and clubs for participating in this year’s lottery! The goal of the Rotary Mega Lottery is to provide a tool for community clubs to raise funds and awareness for their organizations,” said the Rotary Club of Fort St. John in a statement.
The organization says over $5 million has been raised and distributed amongst dozens of local clubs from Fort St. John, Dawson Creek, and Northeast B.C. since the first lottery was held in 2002.
