A Personal Support Worker and Homecare Technician in Windsor has won the Windsor Regional Hospital Foundation’s Mega Money 50/50 Grand Prize Draw.

Sherrel Robertson was notified Friday, January 7th, 2022, at 1pm that her ticket number was chosen. She won $162,022 — one of the largest Grand Prize jackpots in the WRH Foundation’s Mega Money 50/50 Draw history.

“I thank you, I thank you, I thank you,” said a stunned Sherrel who plans to pay her bills and share it with her son, daughter and two grandchildren. “I’m so happy, I can’t explain it. I have to think.”
Sherrel regularly purchased tickets for the WRH Foundation’s 50/50 draws throughout the year in 2021, along with donating to other charitable causes.

She quickly called her daughter to share the amazing news.
“She is a saint. She gives even when she doesn’t have to give because it always comes back,” said Sherrel’s daughter Jonelle Cimino. “We come from nothing back home in Jamaica, and my mom works all the time. Came to Canada, made a life for herself, still gives and now is getting something back.”

The Mega Money 50/50 Draw was launched December 1st, 2021 and included 12 Draws of Christmas prizes leading up to December 25th as well as a New Year’s Eve Night Out Package.

Proceeds from the sale of the lottery tickets support the purchase of vital medical equipment at Windsor Regional Hospital.
