Congratulations to our winner of the Scotties Tournament of Hearts 50/50 Raffle for Tuesday, February 23, 2021
WINNER: Doug Hantiuk and Janice Hantiuk - $7,160
“This is fantastic. It’s a great feeling knowing that we won at the Scotties. And curling’s back. Finally.”
Early this morning, Doug received a Facetime call from his sister, Janice. “I was like, uh oh, something must have happened,” said Doug.
Indeed, something did happen - something epic. After years of going in together on the Oilers’ 50/50 draws, when Janice suggested trying Curling Alberta’s 50/50 raffle, Doug was one hundred percent in. Their first venture during the Scotties has most certainly been a rewarding one as Doug and Janice will be splitting over $7,000 from last night’s winning ticket.
Doug and Janice come from a dedicated family of curlers. Both parents were avid curlers and his mother even has an eight ender under her belt. After looking through some family pictures recently, suddenly curling was back on their minds, just in time for the 2021 Scotties Tournament of Hearts. These days, both Doug and Janice are social curlers and hardcore curling fans. Doug has even traveled to see the Tim Hortons Brier in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador as well as to PyeongChang to cheer on his friend Kevin Koe at the XXIII Olympic Winter Games.
So, how does it feel to win? “This is fantastic!” laughed Doug. “It’s a great feeling knowing that we won at the Scotties. And curling’s back. Finally.”
While plans for the winnings aren’t firmly in place, Doug definitely has some ideas. “When we are all able to get together with our friends – we have a big group – I’m pretty sure me and Janice will splurge a little bit. Maybe buy some more wine?”
With plenty of curling left to watch in Curling’s Capital event series, Doug and Janice plan to partake in more 50/50 draws to extend their winning streak. “We’ve already bought our tickets for tonight,” said Doug.
Every day is a new draw and a new chance to win BIG. 50/50 tickets are available each day of the 2021 Scotties Tournament of Hearts. Tickets can be purchased from 9:00 AM – 10:00 PM MST and can be purchased here. (LL#570519)
Thank you to Doug and Janice and the thousands of fans for helping create a lasting legacy for our sport and supporting community curling initiatives across Alberta.
This could be you!
