WINNER: Linda Fahie and Jack Laforce $4,030

“One more try. Let’s see what happens.”

Linda Fahie and her husband Jack Laforce of Calgary, have been buying 50/50 tickets religiously since the Humpty’s Champions Cup began. Every morning, Linda checks her tickets, with no success. “Last night I wasn’t going to buy any,” said Linda. “but then I thought, one more try and let’s see what happens.”

First thing Friday morning after checking those tickets, she noticed the winning number seemed familiar. “I was so excited when I went up to tell Jack that we won. It really brightened my day,” laughed Linda. Congratulations Linda and Jack for winning Thursday night’s prize of $4,030 in Curling Alberta’s 50/50 raffle.

Currently, Linda is on medical leave and undergoing treatment for cancer, with a powerful and positive outlook. “I’m on the road to getting back to me,” she says emphatically. Staying connected with family and friends is a huge priority for both her and Jack, especially with their four grandchildren. They also set aside time for special date nights, which used to include going out to play bingo, but are now in house. Linda is an amateur photographer and is looking forward to some warmer days to take nature walks and capture pictures of flowers and wildlife in Fish Creek Park. They very much enjoy watching sports, including hockey, baseball, and both of the Pinty’s Grand Slam of Curling events. The highlight for them is always championship weekend and seeing the teams play in those nail-biting finals.
