, Deanna Thompson. Misericordia Community Hospital
Name: Deanna Thompson
Hospital Site & Unit: MCH, 4 West
Winning Draw Date: February 19, 2015
Prize Amount: $20,000
How long have you been employed with Covenant Health?
Almost 15 years.
How many years have you participated in the Caritas Foundation Staff Lottery?
I believe that I have participated for the last 10 years or so.
How many times have you won?
This is the first time I have won any amount!
How does it feel to be our Grand Prize Winner?
I honestly did not know what to think.
I was excited at first that it may be $500 or $1,500. When Megan told me it was $20,000, I was in shock, I yelled "shut up" to her about five times!
Then I was very emotional as I have been off from work since November with an injury. Being a single mom with two boys at home has been a bit of a struggle.
How have your colleagues reacted to your big win?
They are all so happy! Knowing the struggles that I have had, they know that the money is much needed and will be put to good use.
What are you going to spend your prize on?
Unfortunately, nothing too exciting.
I have been paying back my pension from when I was off sick a few years ago. The money will allow me to pay this off and now pay the new amount of pension owed from being off the last four months. I am so happy to be able to clear that debt.
Will you be participating in this year’s Payday Payout?
Do you have anything to say to those who are on the fence about purchasing a ticket?
Purchase a ticket – someone has to win!
I never imagined in a million years it would ever be me, and it was! Good Luck!
Not only does your ticket purchase assist Covenant Health with upcoming priorities at the Edmonton General Continuing Care Centre, Misericordia and
– but it could also pay off for you in a big way like it did for Deanna. Grey Nuns Community Hospitals
