Saskatoon Tim Hortons customer rolls up the rim, wins new SUV
Kia Powery said she typically gets cold drinks, but the recent frigid weather persuaded her to go with a white hot chocolate for her win about a month ago.
“It said ‘win Jeep’ and I just lost my mind. I was screaming,” Powery said on March 8 at the Tim Hortons on Preston Avenue South in the Stonebridge neighbourhood.
“I went into work and I was like ‘I’m sorry, but I just won a car before I got here and I don’t know what I’m supposed to do’ so we just had a big party at work and it was a great time,” she said.
The grand prize winner said the new Jeep came at a perfect time.
“I have a really old car and it’s been super loyal, super faithful,” Powery said.
“But the day before I won the Jeep, I had to get my car boosted three different times and it was so cold my jumper cables had snapped … every day since I won the Jeep, something else has gone wrong with my car.”
