One local man and his family are going to have a pretty good Christmas this year!  

Local man, Glen Loranger recently won $11,469.00 playing Catch the Ace hosted by the Kenora & Lake of the Woods Regional Community Foundation.  

Glen told us about where he was when he learned that he won “I was sitting in the wholesale parking lot. I got a phone call and I answered it. The woman on the other side said congratulations, you just won $11,000.” 

Glen purchased his ticket through the Kenora & Lake of the Woods Regional Community Foundation, half of the money raised by sales goes to helping the Community Foundation support positive change through the region.  

Tara Douglas, Executive Director of the KLWCF explained everything that happened over the past 36 weeks “over the 36 weeks, we handed out just under $7000 in weekly jackpots to the weekly winners and then just over $11,000 for the Grand Jackpot for a total of over $18,000.” 

She went on to say “a huge thank you to everybody who bought tickets over the last 36 weeks and supported the Community Foundation. I’d also like to extend a warm thank you to our exclusive sponsor MNP.”
