KAMLOOPS, B.C. – A British Columbia family’s difficult summer has been relieved by an unexpected lottery windfall.
Sarah Ross of Lumby, B.C., won $1 million in Saturday’s Lotto 6/49 draw, months after her family lost their home to a fire in June.
The 33-year-old mother of two says her family has had a challenging few months, but was supported by great friends and relatives.
She says to win the lottery now is amazing.
Ross and her husband both plan to keep their jobs, but she says there may be some travel in their future.
