Welland, Ontario Nurse Wins $56,800 in October's Mega Monthly 50/50 Draw



A nurse from the Welland area was stunned after learning she won the Windsor Regional Hospital Foundation’s Mega Monthly 50/50 Draw for October.

Trudy Bray, a nurse since 1995 and currently working at St. Catherines General Hospital, won $56,872.

Initially thinking the phone call Friday afternoon was a telemarketer, Bray then remembered she had purchased a ticket for the Mega Monthly draw in a spur of the moment decision this month.

“I just came home from work one day and I was looking up different draws to support and I work at a hospital so I thought I’d support yours,” she said comparing it to purchasing a scratch ticket but this time, benefiting the hospital foundation.

It was the first time she had purchased a ticket for the WRH Foundation’s 50/50 Draw but she was first time lucky. Bray was so overwhelmed, she said she had no idea how she will spend the money.
