Twenty bucks on a lotto ticket.
That’s the best thing Alisa Moore said she’s ever won.

Twenty bucks on a lotto ticket.

That’s the best thing Alisa Moore said she’s ever won.

That changed last week when the 30-year-old married mom of three youngsters won the North Island Gazette’s online survey contest.

“I saw the contest on Facebook last month and entered,” she said.

“It took only a couple of minutes and it’s great to win — just in time for Christmas!”

Moore was among about 140 people who completed the online survey for a chance to win a $700 prize package, including $550 in groceries from Port McNeill’s Marketplace IGA and Port Hardy’s Overwaitea, a year’s subscription to the Gazette, a book of adult passes to the Port Hardy Recreation Centre and scads of bowling passes from North Island Lanes.

Moore said she’s thankful for all the prizes, but the free food will come in handy over the holidays.

“It’s going to be a real great dinner at our house this year,” she said.

The Gazette congratulates Moore and thanks everyone who took the online survey.
