Spruce Kings Show Home Lottery - Winner

The Prince George Spruce Kings would like to congratulate Jennifer and Bruce MacKinnon of Prince George, British Columbia after becoming the grand prize winners in the 29th Annual Spruce Kings Show Home Lottery. On Thursday April 14, 2011, ticket number 1696 was drawn from a total of 8,370 tickets from the draw barrel in front of approximately fifty spectators.

The winners were notified over the phone, although it took more than one phone call to contact them.

"I was sleeping," said an ecstatic Jennifer MacKinnon. "The phone only rang three times; I looked at the clock wondering who was calling me at 10 after 8. When I looked at the phone I saw it was the Spruce Kings."

A few minutes later the call was placed to the MacKinnon household again and this time the connection was made with Spruce Kings Vice-President, Grant Zimmerman providing the good news.

"Oh you are kidding me!" said Jennifer with the shaky excitement in her voice clearly coming through over the phone. "Bruce, we won the house!"

"You buy tickets every year just hoping that maybe you'll get the phone call," said Bruce MacKinnon after the couple arrived at the house. "I'm so glad I moved to Prince George in 1994 and I’m so glad I've been buying tickets every year. Although we missed out last year because all the tickets were sold old; we had to make sure we had our ticket this year so we got it at the house early on."

The 29th Annual Show Home Lottery officially closes as the most successful Lottery ever for the team with 8,370 tickets purchased.

"This has been a great year," said Spruce Kings President, Darcy Buryn. "A lot of credit has to go to Jim Young and his crew, they did a great job. As a supplement to our other revenues, this (Lottery) allows (the Spruce Kings) to compete in the BCHL and for that we have to thank everyone that purchased a ticket and made this the most successful ever."
