Sweet Seats Hockey Raffle – we have winners!

Congrats hockey raffle winners!

The draw at United Way Winnipeg on Wednesday has yielded three lucky winners!

1st prize: ticket # 12128 purchased by Kimberly Embleton

Kimberly is skating away with a private suite for 20 people to watch the Winnipeg Jets pluck the Anaheim Ducks at MTS Centre. If hunger strikes there’s also a $1,000 food credit, but be careful not to spill on your team-signed Jets jersey, Kimberly!

2nd prize: ticket # 14428 purchased by Gail White

Gail scores a private suite for 20 and $1,000 food credit at MTS Centre to watch the Manitoba Moose lock horns with the Iowa Wild. Gail will also be sporting a new team-signed Moose jersey.

3rd prize: ticket # 22095 purchased by Lindsay Paracholski

Lindsay will lace-up the Jets Experience Package to watch the Winnipeg Jets fly through the Anaheim Ducks. The package includes four premium tickets, dinner, pre-game skate and a team-signed Jets jersey.

Thank you to everyone who bought tickets, and congratulations to the winners! And a huge thank you also to our prize sponsors – North West Company, Canad Inns, and Winnipeg Jets.

Go Jets! Go Moose!
