A Sherwood Park couple recently made a trip to Calgary to tell a friend some exciting news.
George Key and his wife Deborah Howes wanted to tell Dolores Herman the news in person – the three were holding the winning ticket for the July 6 Lottomax MaxMillions draw.
“I couldn’t believe what they were telling me,” said Herman of the shared $1 million win. “I still can’t really believe it. It feels like I’m living in a dream.”
Key was first to discover they had the winning ticket. He took his wife to the store, saying they needed to buy some ice cream for their staff and stood by as she checked their stack of lottery tickets.
“I was watching her as she scanned the tickets,” he said. “Her eyes got really big – she was completely stunned!”
Howes said the couple would be paying off their house and living debt-free.
Key bought the winning ticket at the Sherwood Park Petro Canada at 10-1020 Sherwood Drive.
