On Sept. 20, with eight cards remaining, Madonna Comeau Quilty successfully picked the ace of spades. With that she won $595,390.80.
Not too shabby.
The Chase the Ace was a fundraiser for the Meteghan Fire Department.
During the past week leading up to this Chase the Ace, $145,793 worth of tickets had been sold. Tickets are $1 each.
We’ll be updating this story with more information about the fundraiser.
In the meantime, there is still another big ace being chased in southwestern Nova Scotia. On Saturday, Sept. 23 the next draw takes place for the River Hills Golf and Country Club in Clyde River. After the last draw a couple of weeks ago, the jackpot was estimated to be over $610,000 and it will be higher when the draw rolls around this weekend. There are only four cards left.
