Taylor Bulstrode and Jordan Bowker win the largest grand prize yet of $52,982 in January’s 50/50 Hospital Lottery
The winning number, G-6606310, was drawn Friday, January 29th at 11AM for the largest prize to date – $52,982.
Taylor Bulstrode and her partner Jordan Bowker couldn’t believe it was happening, they had to check their tickets multiple times just to be sure they were the lucky winners of the January 50/50 Hospital Lottery.
Taylor started playing the lottery in October after learning about it from her dad, and Jordan picked up on the fun in January, what a month to join!
When asked why they participated in the lottery they said, “It is the right thing to support with COVID-19 going on. […] we wanted to support our community and healthcare workers and know charities cannot do their regular fundraisers right now.”
Taylor and Jordan live nearby and plan to put the funds towards a down payment on a house, and some fun camping gear.
