BARRIE, ONT. -- A 63-year-old Alliston farmer plans to share his $50,000 lottery win with his children, grandchildren and local food bank.
Kenneth Beattie played the Keno 9 Pick in the Jan. 14 evening draw and found out he had won big when he scanned his ticket at a gas station.
"I saw Big Winner on the screen. I put my glasses on and ran it through one more time," he says.
Beattie says he regularly donates to the food bank, and will put a portion of his winnings towards supporting it.
"This was a really nice surprise," he adds.
Beattie bought his winning ticket at the Husky gas station on Victoria Street in Alliston.
