It’s a case of keeping it in the family for the winners of the March 50/50 draw for the Timmins and District Hospital Foundation.

It took several phone calls for the foundation to tell Shannan Mitchell of Timmins that she was holding the winning number, worth a cool $251,828.00.

She’s the ticket holder for the group that also includes her mother-in-law and sister-in-law.

Shannan and her husband Mark say the can now fulfill their dream of buying a home.

Tickets for the April draw are on sale.  The proceeds will go towards a medical simulation lab at the hospital.
