Congratulations to Ernest Shields, March’s Grand Prize winner who won $31,808!

The winning ticket number, U-1984928, was pulled at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, March 31st.

One week ahead of the grand prize draw day Ernest Shields was chatting to a friend who was saying she hoped to win this month’s Hospital 50/50 lottery. Ernie replied straight away, “Oh no. I am going to win it this month!” Well, guess what? He did!

Sarah Ferguson, who manages the 50/50 Hospital Lottery for Guelph General Hospital, caught Ernie on the phone and told him he had won $31,808. “I can’t believe it” was his immediate response. Ernie still hasn’t told his friend that his prediction came true. She is going to laugh! As for plans for his windfall he wants to spoil his wife, sons and granddaughter.
