Correction

A photo caption in Tuesday’s Advocate contained some incorrect information. Don Solberg of Benalto won the grand prize in the David Thompson Health Region Foundation’s 2009 Hospital Lottery. He was among 425 winners of nearly $1 million in prizes in the lottery. Proceeds from the lottery go to fund health projects only in Central Alberta. The foundation raised $500,000 this year, with proceeds to enhance gastroenterology and urology programs.
