Simcoe DJ Wins WRH Mega Monthly Grand Prize



A Simcoe Wedding DJ is playing a happy tune today.

Randy Halmo won the Windsor Regional Hospital Foundation’s Mega Monthly 50/50 Grand Prize Draw for March taking home $93,025.

“It’s quite a shock,” he says. “I’m a little emotional right now.”

Halmo has family in Windsor connected with the longstanding Halmo Jewellers store on Ottawa St.

After hearing about the lottery online and with frontline workers in hospitals struggling to care for patients with COVID-19, he decided to purchase tickets.

“It’s nice to win the money but most important, we need to support all of our hospitals right across Canada with COVID-19, “ he says. “Even when COVID-19 isn’t here, it is important to support hospitals.”

The wedding industry has been hit over the past year because of the pandemic, so the money comes at a perfect time for Halmo who celebrates a milestone anniversary in a few months.

“We are celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary on May 18th and we are going to take some of the money and do a day trip,” he says adding the money will also be used to pay some bills and invest in long-term savings.

April’s Mega Monthly 50/50 Draw will commence on April 5th.
