A local woman has won $75,000 after matching five out of six numbers in Lotto BC/49 draw.
Catherine Webster says she will always remember the morning following Saturday, March 13, 2021’s BC/49 draw.
Webster had purchased her ticket from Sea to Sky Town Pantry on Garibaldi Way. She was at home when she found out about her win.
“I noticed there was a winner in Squamish and didn’t think anything of it, but the number 19 stood out because I knew I had 19 as one of my numbers, so I went and grabbed the ticket to check,” she recalled.
“I was so stunned that I won. I laughed out loud that I actually won $75,000! It really didn’t hit until that evening. The whole day I went around doing my Sunday errands with it not sinking in!”
Webster describes her win as “absolutely wonderful” and plans to put her prize towards some kitchen renovations.
“The excitement that is generated with my family and friends when I tell them I won is just so incredible!”
