Windsor Couple Wins Big

Leo Innocente of Windsor is the newest Canadian Cancer Society $1-million winner.

Innocente’s name was drawn as part of the Daffodil Daily Lottery. He says it was a surprise.

“We were watching the hockey game. I had forgotten about it and had an envelope with the tickets in it. I got the call on April 30,” says Innocente. “I thought, ‘they don’t call you on the same day as the draw.’ I thought maybe I won a toaster.”

Innocente plans on helping to cover the cost of his grand kids’ education.
