CALGARY, AB, August 2, 2017 — The Stampede ended in the middle of July, but Calgary was still buzzing with excitement on July 19 when the final winners were drawn in the 2017 Calgary Stampede Lottery! The draws took place at the Big 4 Building at Stampede Park, and there were a handful of big ticket items awarded to some lucky winners.

Going home to this gem in the NW community of Carrington, Alberta is Donald Wakelam of Nanton, AB who is this year’s Grand Prize winner!
The next highest valued prize was the Split ‘Em 50 jackpot, which reached $1,650,847. That means that the winner, a Donna Wilshusen of Airdrie, AB, takes home half the cash with $825,423.50 in her pocket!
