Kelowna photographer in the spotlight after winning big

Diane Galbraith won $100k in a scratch and win, purchased in Kelowna

A Kelowna photographer is the one in front of the camera after winning $100,000 in a Luxury Crossword Scratch and Win.

Diane Galbraith was scratching her ticket after purchasing it from Shoppers Drug Mart on Bernard Avenue, when she started to see the winning words.

She said she “didn’t believe it at first,” and confirmed its legitimacy online as soon as she got home. Turns out, her family found it hard to believe as well.

“I showed my sister my screen, she was flabbergasted and her first words were ‘no way’,” said Galbraith.

After sharing some of her win with her family, Galbraith plans to treat herself to a new camera as well as some new bedding.

Gabrielle Poon said Fiction, formerly Amka, is the perfect fit for their family. “She loves playing with her big brothers, Cricket (a Shiba Inu) and Facts (Siberian husky).” She has attended rally, obedience, and agility classes and has done remarkably well for such a young pup, according to Poon. “She is eager to please and gets excited whenever she sees the training equipment pulled out. She loves hiking and had her first overnight hiking trip in October. She is such sweet little dog and has so much love to give. We’re delighted to have Fiction as a member of our family!” Poon said.
