VANCOUVER - A Kamloops man has won the big prize at the Pacific National Exhibition in Vancounver; a brand new home in the South Okanagan.

Dave Maw is the grand prize winner of the exhibition’s 82nd Annual Prize Home lottery. The Kamloops resident won the prize, valued at $1.4 million yesterday, Sept. 12, after Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson pulled Maw’s ticket out of the 106,000 possibilities, according to a press release.

The prize includes the 3,200 square ft. home in Naramata just north of Penticton, a barbecue, hot tub and furnishings.

Lottery organizers are calling other winners today.

The lottery is a fundraiser for non-revenue producing programs in arts, agriculture and community.
