Meet our Grand Prize Winner Melanie:
Melanie Lunn was completely shocked to get the call: she had just won our 50/50 draw for $59,850! She has always supported lotteries for the hospitals in Ontario and the great work they do, especially now during COVID-19 – “Hospital workers are an inspiration to us all,” she says.
Melanie was especially keen to support Trillium Health Partners, where mother has been treated. “My family was so impressed and thankful for the care she received. The staff was outstanding.”
She has some ideas on how to spend her windfall, like a newer car, support for a niece off to school and, when the world returns to normal, perhaps a tour of Ireland, including Galway, where her family comes from. “I will continue to support the Trillium Health Partners Foundation, sharing my positive experiences with others. Thank you so much!”
