The Ace of Spades Has Been Found

Mark McEachen of Douglas is $574,002.50 richer after the ace of spades was drawn in the “Catch the Ace” fundraiser for the Deep River and District Hospital on Thursday night at the Bear's Den.

Mark's name was drawn from the drum and he had selected envelope #47 which turned out to hold the elusive Ace.

McEachen, won the weekly prize plus the jackpot. He had bought his ticket at the Bear’s Den earlier in the day.

The lottery began nearly a year ago and has raised around $780,000 for the hospital which will be used to buy X-ray and imaging equipment to replace aging equipment.
