On April 6, 2016, Reader’s Digest Canada announced that Brigitte and Andre Lessard of Saint-Georges-de-Beauce, Que., won the Super Grand Prize in the Reader’s Digest 75th National Sweepstakes.
Reader’s Digest Canada Sweepstakes Administrator and spokesperson, Marisa Orsini, was present in Saint-Georges to award the happy couple their $100,000 Super Grand Prize.
Accompanying Mr. and Mrs. Lessard on their big day were their two children, their spouses and three grandchildren, smiling joyfully at their side. Also present to offer hearty congratulations was Mr. Claude Morin, Mayor of Saint-Georges-de-Beauce.
When first learning of their parents’ Super Grand Prize win, the Lessard children remained sceptical. However, Mrs. Lessard lost no time going online to check out the Reader’s Digest Canada website. There she was able to see the list of past sweepstakes prize winners. That gave her every reason to believe. “Andre always told me to keep returning my entries; he said we would win one day!”
Mr. and Mrs. Lessard, retired owners of a hardware store in Saint-Georges-de-Beauce, plan to put their winnings to good use. They’re thrilled to be able to share their good fortune with their children and grandchildren. Theirs is a close-knit family filled with traditions. One of their happiest is eating donuts and drinking hot chocolate with their grandchildren every Sunday. They also enjoy the simple things in life like gardening. Mrs. Lessard loves to take walks and soak in the nature surrounding her home. She especially looks forward to her quiet moments, reading a good book or going to the movies.
Along with the $100,000 Super Grand Prize, 113 other prizes were drawn in this 75th edition of the publisher’s Sweepstakes; one prize of $40,000, one prize of $10,000, one prize of $5,000, ten prizes of $1,000 each, and one hundred prizes of $100 each.
The winners’ names are posted on the Reader’s Digest Canada Sweepstakes site.
