The 50/50 draw for Chatham-Kent Health Alliance Foundation came to a conclusion today with a whopping overall pot of $294,360.00, and Bert Vanderheide of Blenheim Ontario picked up his cheque for $149,180.00.
Bert, a 59 year old from Blenheim has been renting a home that he has really wanted to buy. “My landlord is retiring and selling his properties, I really wanted to buy the house and now I can.” Said Vanderheide.
Vanderheide bought his ticket at the Foundation office on Tuesday at 10:49 am. “I’m not really sure why I bought a ticket, but my wife said I should pick some up…and well happy wife – happy life.”
When asked what he wanted to do with the prize he simply responded “buy my house and share it with my wife.”
Vanderheide works for JoVan Mechanical Plumbing & Heating Contractors Ltd. He said “I might see if I can take the day off tomorrow.”
The Chatham-Kent Health Alliance Foundation, and presenting sponsors of the draw, Maple City Homes and Agriroots congratulate Bert and thank all of Chatham-Kent for their support.
