Michéle Beaulieu wins $525,475 in July’s HSN 50/50 Grand Prize Draw

Posted 4 August 2022 at 1:37pm

HSN Foundation, NEO Kids Foundation, the Northern Cancer Foundation, and the HSN Volunteer Association are excited to announce that July’s HSN 50/50 take-home jackpot of $525,475 has been won by Michéle Beaulieu of Sudbury along with members of her family Rita, Monique, and family friend Lyse (ticket # Z-21559379).

“We’ve been buying tickets individually for a long time, but only started buying together in January. We were hoping it might bring us some extra luck,” said Michéle. “It’s hard to believe we’re standing here with a cheque. On Friday we were all talking about how lucky this month’s winner is and the next thing I know my phone rang with a call from HSN. I was out at camp, but I FaceTimed everyone right away. We are just so surprised.”

When asked about their share of the winnings, Michéle, Rita, and Monique gave a variety of answers. Michéle might look into a new car, Rita is thinking about an apartment upgrade and Monique is going to start some kitchen renovations as well as set some aside to help family. Lyse was out of town and unable to attend the photo and interview.

“I’m very pleased to extend a big congratulations to this month’s HSN 50/50 winners, Michéle, Rita, Monique, and Lyse. This has to be the best possible way to start a new month,” said Anthony Keating, President and Chief Development Officer of Foundations and Volunteer Groups at HSN. “Not only is it exciting to be making dreams come true for our winners, but it’s also equally thrilling to know that this lottery is making a difference in patient care. For example, we were able to purchase a Hana surgical table with HSN 50/50 funds earlier this year for use in hip replacement surgeries, which results in a more comfortable recovery for patients. We look forward to continuing to make an impact on patient care at HSN thanks to the many supporters of the HSN 50/50 across the province.”

Earlier this month, the Foundations at HSN realeased their joint Impact Report to the Community, highlighting how the HSN 50/50 and the thousands of donors allowed us to give back in support of patient care at HSN.
