The day after the BC/49 draw on Saturday, March 13 was the definition of a Sunday Funday for Catherine Webster.
That’s when the Squamish woman discovered that she was $75,000 richer after matching five of six numbers from the draw.
She was at home when she discovered her good fortune.
“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 explained.
“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, who bought the winning ticket from the Town Pantry on Garibaldi Way, has plans to put her prize towards kitchen renovations.
She described her win as “absolutely wonderful” and said the excitement generated with her family and friends when she told them the news was incredible.
