Meet the latest Women's World Championship 50/50 Winners!

August 28 – Gerry Forbes ($171,140)

The CJAY 92 radio legend explains how he won Saturday's Women’s Worlds 50/50, supporting women's hockey initiatives in Alberta.

August 26 – David Shears ($172,515)

David played a little bit of hockey growing up, but loves watching the game at every level – minor, junior and, of course, our national teams. Get to know one of our great winners, who are supporting women’s hockey initiatives in Alberta!

Why did you want to purchase a ticket?

I do believe girls and women should get the opportunity to play and it means the world to them. However, it is a shame that many young girls do not get the opportunity, with not all areas and small towns having enough girls to make teams or make up leagues of their own.

How did you come to love the game?

I was a billet home for the Whitecourt Wolverines Junior A hockey team for eight years. Something I would recommend any family do if you are able, as it’s a very important part of many hockey organizations. I cannot stress it enough, [billet families are] key to the survival of many hockey organizations, and without them many teams would fail. But the best side of it is all the young men and women and their families you meet and become lifelong friends with.

What do you plan to do with your winnings?

Nothing very exciting: pay off a couple bills, put a little away towards retirement and maybe a new summer car.

August 24 — Riane Hamerston ($83,450)

Riane grew up surrounded by hockey, from playing the sport herself to regularly watching her brother and father play the game. Get to know one of our great winners, who are supporting women’s hockey initiatives in Alberta!

Why did you want to purchase a ticket?

My husband and I have been contributing towards the IIHF World Junior Championship for many years. With the IIHF Women's World Championship in our hometown of Calgary this year, there was a greater connection to be able to support hockey in Alberta and women within the sport.

How does hockey and organized sport impact the lives of young women and girls?

As a woman that grew up in sports since the age of three, the ability to participate in organized sport for young women and girls is absolutely everything. I know I would not be who I am today, both physically and mentally, if it weren't for sport. Being able to invest back into our own communities for more hockey experiences across Alberta will change many lives forever.

What do you plan to do with your winnings?

Putting the money away is the smart choice, but spending the money on ticket packages for future IIHF championships sounds like a better choice!

Meet the Albertans who have claimed the jackpots!

December 27 – Shari Mack ($241,850)

It might have been Shari’s name on the ticket, but the biggest jackpot to date is being shared between eight front-line health-care workers from the Lloydminster Hospital.

The group of women, who work in the maternity unit, are strong supporters of the Alberta hockey community and most have children who play minor hockey. After what was a long and stressful year due to COVID-19, Shari says they feel extremely blessed to have had the winning ticket.

To hear from the group, watch below.
