A Leamington man is planning to donate his scratch ticket winnings.

Michael Schlater of Leamington walked into the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto and told officials he already knew what he planned to do with the $250,000 top prize he won playing Instant Cadillac Riches.

“I will be donating my winnings to my son’s high school in Leamington!” said Schlater. “The school is in need of a computer system upgrade and this donation will help them get it.”

The 54-year old Leamington businessman has been playing the lottery for nearly thirty years.

“When I found out I had a winning Instant scratch ticket it was a huge thrill,” he said. “It’s the most I’ve ever won. My wife couldn’t believe it and started crying!”

Michael says he can’t think of a better way to invest his winnings. “We are very blessed with where we are in life. Now we have the ability to help and that’s what we plan to do.”

The winning ticket was purchased at Jack’s Mini Mart & Coffee Shop on Talbot Street in Leamington.
