Prince George couple headed to ski weekend, Machu Picchu after $500k Daily Grand win

Community members shared in Shawna and Jason Eberle’s joy after they found out they won $500,000 Extra prize from the February 15th Daily Grand draw.

Shawna purchased and checked the ticket at the Save-on-Foods in the Hart, and Jason was in the car at the time Shawna discovered the news of the win.

“I checked the ticket with the retailer and I couldn’t believe it,” Shawna said.
