Jessica Hutchinson is the proud winner of a 2014 Dodge Journey.
Of 120 individuals gathered for the drawing, whose names had been selected from Co-op shoppers entered in the drawing, Hutchinson drew a lucky 21 at the Ucluelet Co-op on New Yearâ€™s Eve and the key opened the door to the new vehicle, which had been enticing shoppers in the parking lot with an inviting â€œwin me.â€
Hutchinson, who is the executive director of the Central Westcoast Forest Society, had been driving a 2004 Chevy. She has lived on the West Coast for over a decade.
She has never won anything as big as a car before, she said.
â€œIâ€™m really really blown away .. Iâ€™m totally in shock,â€ she said with a wide smile.
