Wheels for Meals Lottery Winner Claims his Truck!

Bolton, ON- September 18, 2017

Now that the official paperwork is out of the way, Wheels for Meals Lottery winner Richard Turchinetz drove away with his brand new 2017 Ford F150 XLT Crew Cab truck, two bicycles and camping equipment.

Richard and his wife Elaine were all smiles as they drove away with their new wheels, but not before being very gracious and grateful for the win. Richard presented Executive Director Christine Sevigny with a donation cheque for Caledon Meals on Wheels.

“What a wonderful and unexpected surprise to wrap up the Wheels for Meals Lottery with a donation. It couldn’t have happen to a nicer guy!” says Sevigny.

The transfer of the vehicle took place at Fines Ford Lincoln and dealership owner Bob Fines shared that he was honoured to have been chosen by Caledon Meals on Wheels to supply the vehicle for the Wheels for Meals Lottery.

The Wheels for Meals Lottery was launched in April, with the early bird draw for $1,000 taking place on July 1st and grand prize draw on August 31st. The Lottery’s success was a true community effort and we cannot thank enough all the local businesses who allowed us to sell tickets at their events or office, our volunteer ticket sellers, employees and of course our partner, Fines Ford Lincoln.

Over 5,000 tickets were sold, raising more than $35,000. 100% of the proceeds from the Wheels for Meals Lottery will support the current social W.I.S.E programs delivered weekly at 11 locations thru out Caledon and Orangeville.

Lottery license number 8734.
