Curt Hendrickson was ‘elated’ when he received the phone call shortly after 11 a.m. on October 16th, 2020 from LWDHF Executive Director Jess Rheault….who being from a small town, has known Curt for years.
“Hi there, is this Curt Hendrickson?
“Yes it is.”
“Otherwise known as Purolator Guy?”
“Oh hahaha hi Jess….”
“Do you know why I would be calling you shortly after 11am on draw day?”
“I didn’t win did I?!?!?”
“YOU WON! YOU ARE OUR LUCKY WINNER!”
“Unbelievable! Oh my god! This is not a prank?!?! This is not a prank?!?!”

Curt’s number C-6064110 was drawn electronically and he is now $57,402 richer!

“Once I knew Jess wasn’t joking, the first thing I thought about was how I would spend some money.  A snowmobile.  For my staycation!” Hendrickson is a loyal supporter of the Lake of the Woods District Hospital Foundation 50/50 draw since its inception and chooses to only purchase locally when it comes to raffle tickets.  “It’s great to support the hospital and local causes.  I buy any hockey draws, from sports teams, service groups-it’s all I ever buy and I will continue to buy for the hospital 50/50. It’s nice to know where the money goes…and it stays right here to help the hospital.”

The government does not fund medical equipment so money raised through our monthly online 50/50 will help in the purchase of that ensuring that your hospital has what it needs to take care of you! Your chance to win supports your hospital and we are excited to be awarding Curt Hendrickson $57,402 as our winner of Draw #3 in the LWDHF online 50/50!   Next month, it could be YOU!

It was an easy decision for Tiffany to chose to support the LWDHF 50/50 .  ”It was mostly a ‘why not?’ Like, twenty dollars out of my pocket, but it’s going to help the entire community in the long run.”  Tiffany and her husband own a local business, Cottage Essentials and have lived in Keewatin for the past 6 years.  She says moving here from another province has been the best decision they’ve ever made as they love this town and the people in it.  The pair were planning on doing renovations to their home this fall and with Tiffany’s new found winnings it will help those renovations go a little faster.  When asked how they plan on celebrating Tiffany said ‘We’ll probably be ripping out a wall in the next few weeks!’.  Congratulations again going out to our first LWDHF 50/50 winner!

It truly is an example of the power our community has when they come together! $5, $10, and $20 tickets grew the jackpot to $47,185…that and the $1000 kick off generously put up by the Dingwall Group!  Thank you!” Jess Rheault, Executive Director-LWDHF.
