WINNER: Rick and Nancy Baker $5,365

“Total serendipity, I guess.”

For the second time since Curling Alberta launched the 50/50 raffle, we are celebrating a two-time winner. Congratulations to Friday’s winners of the $5,365 cash prize, Rick and Nancy Baker of Lethbridge. Their name might sound familiar, as Nancy purchased a winning ticket during the Tim Horton’s Brier.

After coming in from the farm last night, Nancy had already checked their tickets and told Rick that he wasn’t going to believe it. “I didn’t know what to think,” said Rick. “You go back, you look at the numbers, you look again. Total serendipity, I guess.”

The Bakers are a southern Alberta farm family, and most of Rick’s time is spent outdoors. “Starting this time of year, the farm owns me seven days a week for the next five months,” said Rick. Nancy works as a Respiratory Therapist and they have three daughters. Their eldest also works in Respiratory Therapy, their second daughter is a student at SAIT, and their youngest is looking forward to being on campus at the University of British Columbia in September.

Since their first win in March, they have enjoyed their prize money and purchased golf clubs and a couple of electric bikes. “Those are a lot of fun,” laughed Rick, “makes me feel like a teenager again.”

Rick is still processing the fact that they have won a second time. “It’s kind of surreal. There is some kismet at work here and I’d better pay some of it forward, right?”

Thank you, Rick and Nancy, and to the thousands of curling fans for helping to build a lasting legacy within Curling Alberta’s borders. Proceeds from the 50/50 raffle will go towards funding future grassroots initiatives and community curling programs across Alberta.

50/50 tickets are available each game day of the LGT World Women’s Curling Championship. Tickets can be purchased from 9:00 AM – 10:00 PM MT Buy Your Tickets Here! (LL#570518)
