Tyson Franz wins $77,052 in the April SAHF 50/50 Draw

On April 30th, Tyson Franz of Sault Ste. Marie, ON won a $77,052 jackpot in the Sault Area Hospital Foundation (SAHF) April 50/50 draw. Tyson’s lucky number (A-5660078) was drawn electronically, and he was called immediately.

Our April 50/50 winner, Tyson Franz and his dog Lager!

As a long-time supporter of SAHF’s 50/50, Tyson was thrilled to get the call that he won, “I buy tickets every month, it’s a great way to support the hospital,” he shared. April calls for a double celebration as Tyson turned 50 in the same month he won our 50/50. It looks like a birthday wish may have come true! Tyson doesn’t have plans for his winnings yet, but a trip and a dog-sitter may be in his future.

Tyson wasn’t the only winner this month – April’s Early Bird, Todd Barber of Desbarats, ON, was the lucky winner of $10,000 on April 17th with ticket A-3411307.

“Each lottery ticket purchase helps us fund much-needed equipment at SAH, so everyone in the Algoma region can have access to excellent care. Thank you to our loyal players for supporting us and our community!” said Teresa Martone, Executive Director for Sault Area Hospital Foundation.
