Red Deer woman wins big

Cash and Cars Lottery draw

The holidays are looking brighter for one Red Deer resident.

Laurayn Radford won $250,000 from this year’s first Cash and Cars Lottery supporting the Alberta Cancer Foundation.

Radford said she received a phone call from her mother who had watched the draw on television.

“Three minutes later people from all over the province were calling me to let me know,” said Radford.

The Cash and Cars Lottery grand prizes were part of 3,023 prizes worth more than $4.2 million.

The annual lottery is sponsored by the Alberta Cancer Foundation which is the official fundraising partner for all 17 cancer centres in Alberta.

The funds raised in the lottery help the foundation invest in breakthrough research, clinical trials and enhanced care at all the cancer centres across the province.
