Oshawa’s Ken and Cathy Jeffs are the lucky winners of $100,000 after matching six of seven Encore numbers in the May 6 Lotto Max draw.

One Oshawa couple has big plans for a sudden influx of cash.

Ken and Cathy Jeffs are the lucky winners of $100,000 after matching six of seven numbers on their Encore selection for the May 6 Lotto Max draw.

“First thing Saturday morning, I headed to the store to check my tickets,” Ken states in a news release.

“While scanning my second ticket at the ticket checker, I saw the words ‘Big Winner $100,000’ on the screen.”

And what is the money going towards? Ken says the money will go toward paying off debt, buying a new cottage and getting his wife a new diamond ring.

Cathy says she was asked about the winnings by one of her granddaughters, who thought they might be rich now.

“My granddaughter asked if the win means we are rich now and I gently told her, ‘Rich in many ways, but mostly because of the love we have for each other,’” says Cathy.
