The years is off to a good start for Dave Polowick of Chatham as he was named the grand prize winner of Community Living Wallaceburg’s 2019 Travel Club Lottery.

The vacation – a $3,498 value – includes flights and seven night’s accommodations in Faro, Portugal.

The Grand Prize draw is one of six getaways and 12 $50 cash prizes that will be drawn over the course of 2019.

“We were overwhelmed with the enthusiam and generosity of our local community towards this lottery,” Rhian Reilly, Communication and Fund Development Specialist, said in a media release. “We want to sincerely thank everyone for purchasing tickets and making the 2019 Travel Club Lottery a success. Fundraisers such as this are only possible because we have the support from volunteers, employees and local businesses who help promote ticket sales and assist in being advocates for the Agency.”
