The number 13 proved lucky for Mary Fairfield of Arnprior.
Fairfield’s ticket was chosen when the Arnprior Lions made the much anticipated draw Jan. 13 for their annual raffle.
Her winnings will make her a popular woman in the next couple of months.
Fairfield won two pairs of tickets to two Ottawa Senators games, four tickets to Disney on Ice at the Canadian Tire Place, two tickets to the National Arts Centre’s Sound of Music and a three-movie package for four people at the Landmark Cinema in Kanata.
Also winners in the Lions raffle are the Neighbourlink Fountain centre of Arnprior and the area branch of the Lions Club of Canada Guide Dogs, which share in the proceeds.
“Thank you for helping the Lions help our community,” said Carroll, in presenting Fairfield with her prize.
He said the Lions hoped to sell 2,000 tickets, but ended up with 1,371 sales, enough to make a decent donation to both local charities.
Fairfield was delighted with her win, noting she’s not been very lucky in the past when it comes to draws. She’s especially looking forward to Disney on Ice and the Sound of Music.
She bought the winning ticket from Carroll and Dave Haines when they were selling them in front of the Metro store.
The next fundraiser for the Arnprior Lions Club is a ham and bean supper Sunday, Feb. 28 from 4-7 at the Masonic Lodge. The club will hold its annual Farmers’ Night April 28.
