    Two Red Deerians are doing the Happy Dance after winning the lottery recently. On Friday, the Western Canada Lottery Corporation announced that Cynthia Goulding won $166,666.70 on the December 5th “Daily Grand” draw. Goulding chalks the win up to “beginners luck” as it was the first time she ever played!

    In a release, Goulding says “This was the first Daily Grand ticket I ever bought. I play Lotto Max and Lotto 6/49 every month, but this time the clerk asked if I wanted a Daily Grand ticket. I’m happy I added it on!”

    Goulding says she didn’t know she had won anything until mid-January, when she scanned her ticket at the store. But even then, she still wasn’t sure she had actually won. “I couldn’t believe it,” she said. “I was in complete disbelief. It still hasn’t really sunk in.”

    Goulding hasn’t made any plans for her winnings yet, saying “I really haven’t thought about what to do with the winnings. We’re pretty low-key people. We’ll probably put some away for our retirement and share with our family. Maybe we’ll plan a trip to Hawaii.” Goulding purchased her winning ticket at the Deer Park Co-op at 69 Dunlop Street in Red Deer.

    Elsewhere, Tasha Lynch is grateful for the twist of fate that resulted in a $100,020 lottery win. The Red Deer resident won on a Lotto Max and Extra ticket she hadn’t even intended to buy.

    In a release, Lynch says “I asked the clerk for a $24 Super Pack, but he accidentally printed a different pack instead. He printed the correct pack of tickets, but I decided to take the Lotto Max ticket he had already printed too. That “mistake” ticket matched the last six winning Extra digits on the January 27th draw to win $100,000. It also matched four of the main winning Lotto Max numbers to win another $20.”

    Lynch says she has a couple of plans for her winnings. “I have been trying to build a house, so most of this money will go toward that. Adding, “I also would like to go to Las Vegas for a long-overdue honeymoon.”

    Lynch purchased her winning Lotto Max and Extra ticket at the Neighbours Petro Canada at 3330 Gaetz Avenue in Red Deer.

    Central Alberta family looking for someone to be their Easter Miracle



    If you like this, share it!

  • This post has been submitted by the mother of a young Central Alberta father.  He moved to Calgary years ago to be closer to medical care.   His wife grew up in Sylvan Lake and Lacombe.  Together they’re raising 2 children and unfortunately their future is uncertain.  

    From Julie. 

    You may or may not have seen a desperate plea from a Central Alberta family trying to save a loved one’s life.  This is the kind of situation that requires a really large number of people to help out.  You never know who’s going to step forward and become someone’s hero.  The key is, they have to know about the situation before they can act on it.  So.. here’s a bit of information about this

    Alex’s Journey

    Having a baby is supposed to be a wonderful time in your life. Alex was born looking healthy; however, it all went wrong for him at 22 months of age.

    After being rushed by his Father and I by car to our nearby city hospital, Alex was hospitalized for 5 days with a 105 degree fever, which nothing would bring down. Alex was in so much pain, screaming a blood curdling sound that made you think someone was murdering this poor baby slowly.

    Once at hospital he was whisked away to try to identify the problem. They told us he was a mess inside and needed to be airlifted to Sick Children’s Hospital. Once there it became a series of surgeries and a lengthy hospital stay. His kidneys were being affected by a blockage he had developed.

    By age four he lost one kidney and again needed several hospital visits and surgeries to help save his other kidney. The doctors explained that Alex has Chronic Renal Failure and would eventually need a kidney transplant. At age 8 we almost lost him again due to a potassium overload in his remaining kidney that gradually slowed his heart dangerously. We made another trip to Sick Children’s Hospital to get his levels back down before his heart stopped.

    Through all these hardships Alex always remained a tough little guy. Now as a 29-year-old with a loving wife and 2 little ones, the time has come for our son and he is in need of a kidney.

    My name is Julie, I am his mother and I have said from the beginning of this journey that I will give my kidney. That being said, it would be wise to have more donors that are willing as well to help him have a greater chance of success. His older brother has also volunteered, so please help us give Alex and his family a happy, healthy life.

    Julie (mom)

    If you have Blood Type O and this something you could do, our family would be so grateful to have the chance to keep him in our lives and give him the opportunity to watch his children grow up. Anyone can be tested to see if they are a match. You will need Alex’s full name so please visit the Facebook Group we have set up and reach out to our admin/s.

  • You couldn’t have written a better script!  When the Central Alberta Dream Home Lottery Grand Prize was drawn at noon Wednesday, the winners were just around the block!  A police officer sleeping after a busy night shift must have thought he was still dreaming when he replied to a string of phone messages he’ll never forget.  His wife, a social worker at a local high school had just left to return to work when he called her back.  They won the Dream Home and they could go see it right away.  It was took them about a minute to arrive.   Here’s what happened…

    It was an honour to experience this moment with the crew from the Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre!  We’d like to share it with you.
