A retired Windsor couple, married for 54 years and a family friend are smiling ear to ear as they won the Windsor Regional Hospital Foundation’s Mega Monthly 50/50 Grand Prize worth $88,015.
The winning ticket number belonged to 78-year old Larry Stanciu (seen in the photo), who was self-employed in the Tool and Die industry. Stanciu had purchased the ticket along with family friend Carol Parent (seen in the photo).
In a heartwarming twist, they decided to make a generous donation back to the foundation.
Larry's wife Sandra Stanciu was ‘absolutely excited’ Friday afternoon to receive the phone call of the winning ticket number.
The Stanciu family confesses to being “Big Windsor Boosters” donating to other causes including purchasing tickets for June’s Sail Into Summer 2-Home Edition fundraiser for the Windsor Regional Hospital Foundation to support the Urology Unit.
“Love the area and love the people,” says Sandra. “Our family is here, our two daughters and our grandchildren are here. It couldn’t be a nicer place to live.”
She says Larry spotted an advertisement for the 50/50 Draw to support the Windsor Regional Hospital Foundation and decided to purchase tickets.
June’s Mega Monthly 50/50 Draw will kick off on Monday with a guaranteed prize of $8,249.
