Y Dream Home winners set to visit abode
After months of anticipation, the dream has finally come true for two lucky winners.
The Y Dream Home has been won and the lucky ticket number was number 1115, held by Kamloops couple Dennis and Eva Dornan.
Eva was alone at the couple’s North Kamloops home when she received the call — and she couldn’t believe what she was hearing.
“We have never won anything like this before,” Eva told KTW. “I was so surprised. I was home alone and I didn’t know what to do.”
She said it took a few minutes to register that they had actually won. She then called her husband to let him know the good news.
Dennis was at work in Merritt at the time and headed home once he heard the news.
While waiting for her husband, Eva said she couldn’t help but express her excitement.
“Every once in a while I’d go, ‘Wow! Wow!’ And, there was nobody in the house but me,” she said with a laugh.
Dennis said he had tried to buy a package of five tickets, but they were sold out, so he instead bought three individual tickets.
Eva said they have purchased tickets in past Y Dream Home draws, including spending $500 last year.
The couple has not toured the Sun Rivers home and was thinking of selling the house, but that might change once they see it.
Eva, 65, and Dennis, 68, plan to visit their new abode on Tuesday, July 10.
