THUNDER BAY – A Marathon man is nearly $700,000 richer after winning the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Foundation’s 50/50 jackpot for January.
The jackpot closed in at $681,170 and was won by Dan Sullivan from Marathon who says he has been a regular ticket purchaser of the Thunder Bay 50/50, and already has an idea of what he wants to do with the winnings.
"After using some of the money to fix up our house, we definitely want to rescue another dog," said Sullivan.
"We don’t need all of this money to live comfortably, so I want to donate some back to the Hospital, and to some other organizations so we can help make a difference in other people’s lives, too!"
The monthly jackpots continue to be impressive amounts of money and the proceeds always go towards improving care in Thunder Bay.
"Not only does another huge jackpot mean good news for the winners, but it’s great news for the hospital, too," said Glenn Craig, President and CEO of the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Foundation.
"February’s draw is now open, and since February is heart month, proceeds from the 50/50 will be going towards improving cardiac care in Thunder Bay. The Cath Lab needs a new C-Arm, and we are hoping to offset a good portion of that cost with the dollars that come in through the 50/50".
