WINNER: Melissa Brousseau $6,070

“I like to support any local sports that we have in our community, and I noticed a portion of the proceeds would go to directly to my local curling club.”

Congratulations to Melissa Brousseau on winning her share of Friday’s Share the Love with Your Club $12,140 jackpot. It’s a win-win situation as Melissa takes home $6,070, and a portion of her ticket purchase will support the Whitecourt Curling Club, which celebrated its 70th anniversary in 2019. 

In small town Alberta, people like Melissa can always be counted on to rally behind local sports. After clicking on a Facebook post shared by Whitecourt Curling Club, she decided to enter the 50/50 raffle.  “I like to support any local sports that we have in our community,” said Melissa, “and I noticed a portion of the proceeds would go to directly to my local curling club.” Melissa has never curled before, but has wanted to learn.  While restrictions the last two seasons haven’t made it possible, 2021 is the year she will get on the ice and make it happen.

Melissa is an Environmental Technologist and lives on an acreage with her husband and young sons, aged five and two. In the summer, she plays softball and loves to go quadding, fishing and camping with her family. This summer they all are looking forward to venturing out in their new camper to one of their favorite spots in BC’s interior.

Winning an unexpected, yet sizeable cash prize, is an incredible and exciting way to start the weekend. “I didn’t even think that I had won,” said Melissa. “It’s an amazing feeling because my husband was laid off last year due to COVID and that amount of money is going to go a long way for us.”

Thank you, Melissa, and to the fans across the province for supporting Curling Alberta’s Share the Love with Your Club 50/50 raffle. Together we can raise the much-needed funds to keep local curling centres the heart and soul of communities in Alberta.

Tickets are available for purchase each game day of the 2021 Home Hardware Canadian Mixed Doubles Curling Championship, from 9:00 AM – 10:00 PM MST and can be purchased here. (LL#570518)
