Ontario Teacher Lottery

Ontario Teacher Lottery, When the Toronto area school teacher Craig Henshaw flew off to backpack through Europe this summer, I had no idea it was flying away from a winning ticket for the July 8 and 21 million LOTTO MAX.
“I bought the ticket, put it on my fridge with lots of other tickets and then forgot about it all summer!” smiled the carpentry workshop of 42 years and technology teacher.
Henshaw and his girlfriend had spent the summer traveling and it was not until school started again that he realized he had to see a whole lot of money.
“Essentially, I walked with a lottery ticket and $ 21 million in my pocket all day!” laughed Henshaw, who earned his ticket at a grocery store, while driving home after work.
“At first I thought I won and 21,000, and was amazed. I was so excited. OLG When the person on the phone told me I won 21 million and, in fact I dropped the phone. I was frozen. I could not believe it. My life is just going to be so great now! “Henshaw said.
In their enthusiasm, Henshaw forgot the groceries that he bought and ran home to share the news with his parents and his girlfriend.
“Still I can not believe it!” he smiled. “This does not seem real. Everything I do, like buying my first home and laid down now will be a possibility.”
Henshaw says one of the first things you will do is create an education fund for his nieces and a nephew and a close friend to help with tuition.
“And then my parents took me on a trip somewhere warm and get my girlfriend back to Europe in style!” laughed.
Henshaw said it would take a sabbatical from teaching, but he likes to teach much to imagine a future without him.
The winning ticket was purchased at Shell gas bar in Dupont Street in Toronto.
