Grande VieA Centre-du-Québec resident wins $25,000 a year for life!

Montréal, July 5, 2023 — Centre-du-Québec resident Dominique Dugré took home $25,000 a year for life in the June 15 Grande Vie draw. When the cashier told her she’d won $25,000 a year for life after validating her ticket, Dugré replied: “You’re kidding, let me see the validation slip!” The lucky winner, who opted for the lump sum prize of $500,000, says she’ll take some time to think about how she’ll spend her windfall.


The winning ticket was purchased at Épicerie Lauzière, located at 2015 Rue Saint-Pierre, in Drummondville.
