Pravatoudom when into the bank to pay some bills while her husband checked the tickets. When Pravatoudom got back into the car, her husband told her that they won the lottery.
“I was ecstatically happy, I was crying at the same time. I couldn’t believe it at first,” Pravatoudom said during a virtual celebration where she was presented the check. “I am going to buy a house, then if it’s allowed after Covid, I’m going to travel the world.”
Pravatoudom also told stories of how her and her siblings immigrated to Canada from Laos in 1980 and how hard her and her husband worked to support their family.
“My family was sponsored by a local church and because we had nothing, I am thankful for the great support they provided us over the years,” she said. “My husband and I have worked long hours as general labourers for over 40 years, trying to save what we could for our family. Due to the pandemic I was laid off last spring, so this money will certainly help make our lives much easier.”
The Pravatoudoms also plan on paying off their debts, helping out their children, and living life!
