Etobicoke resident an early bird winner in the Canadian Red Cross Lottery
Red Cross Lottery winner Gloria Osborne, from Etobicoke, ON, proudly holds her cheque for $15,000.
The retired nurse and grandmother of five said she was in disbelief when she received the news that she had won. When asked what she is going to do with the money, she replied that she’s thinking about using some of it on a trip to Newfoundland. This is the first win for Osborne, who has purchased tickets for the Red Cross lottery in the past.
“The Red Cross is a great charity and I am very happy to support the organization,” she said.
It is not too late to purchase a ticket for this year’s lottery. The early bird deadline is June 7.
This year, the Canadian Red Cross Lottery will give away more than 4,300 amazing prizes including cars, cash, dream vacations, and electronics.
