Kelowna woman wins Harley motorbike

Lesli Lorincz had winning raffle ticket for fundraiser put on by Kelowna & District Safety Council.

Since the middle of March, the Kelowna & District Safety Council has been selling tickets on its 9th annual Harley Davidson raffle fundraiser.

On Canada Day,  the winning ticket was chosen by random draw at KDSC’s home base in Rutland, with the winner being Lesli Lorincz, of Kelowna.

Lorincz’s lucky raffle ticket won her a  2015 Harley Davidson Dyna Switchback and a Learn to Ride course from the Kelowna & District Safety Council.  The total prize value was $24,380.25.

“We called Lesli right away,” said executive director Tania Meyer, “but she wasn’t home and returned the call a short time later.  When I told her that she won, she was so excited that she was screaming and later said she was hoarse the next day.”

Lorincz  purchased the winning ticket #801 at KDSC office, and said that she was cleaning out her purse a week ago and almost threw out the ticket thinking that she’d never win, but was glad that she kept it.  She  intends to keep the bike and learn to ride with KDSC.

“This raffle is a really important part of our annual fundraising,” said Meyer. “We want to thank everyone who purchased a ticket.  We have a lot of loyal ticket purchasers who buy tickets every year, and the money will be used to support KDSC’s Little Travellers’ Safety Village for children.”
