FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
PRINCE GEORGE, BC – The Prince George Spruce Kings would like to congratulate Melissa Lawrence of Prince George, the winner of the third early bird draw in the 28th Annual Spruce Kings Show Home Lottery. Ticket number 3713 was purchased at Canadian Tire and was drawn on Sunday night at 8:00pm out of the Show Home Lottery draw barrel at the house in the Aberdeen Glen Subdivision.
When notified of that her ticket had been drawn as the early bird prize winner, Melissa was very excited and said she had been a long time follower of the Spruce Kings because her uncle Rick Kooses had played for the team. As the winner of the third early bird prize, Melissa wins a four pack of adult season tickets to the Prince George Spruce Kings 2010-11 British Columbia Hockey League season valued at $716.
The winning ticket was one of the 4,178 in the draw barrel, which is over 55% of the 7,500 tickets available for the annual lottery in support of the community owned Junior ‘A’ Spruce Kings hockey team. The lottery has sold out in both of the previous years and is on pace to do the same again this year.
“It is amazing the support we are getting from all over the province and especially here in Prince George,” said Spruce Kings Show Home Lottery manager, Jim Young. “It is incredible to have over 41 hundred tickets sold at this point of the lottery. We are so grateful to the overwhelming support we are getting.”
Seven early bird prizes remain leading up to the grand prize of a custom built Show Home by Ebb Construction valued at $376,000 on February 14, 2010. The next early bird prize draw will be on Sunday December 13, 2009 for a $2,000 Canadian Tire Gift Card.
