Russell Kin Club’s Catch The Ace lottery suspended again because of lockdown

WINCHESTER — The Kin Club of Russell has announced that Catch the Ace is suspended due to the latest provincial COVID-19 stay-at-home order. But it will be back as soon as it is safe to do so, hopefully on Sunday, May 9th. Until then, tickets are still for sale.

There are now just nine envelopes remaining and the jackpot is more than $336,000. The next weekly win will be more than $20,000 when the game resumes.

It’s the third time a pandemic lockdown has interrupted the initiative, which first began selling tickets over a year ago, just as the presence of COVID-19 began to be felt on the global scene.

Both online and paper ticket sales are still permitted, but no pickup or delivery of paper tickets is allowed. All tickets that have been purchased since the last draw, and those purchased between now and the next draw, will be valid for the next draw, hopefully on May 9th. Please be sure to select the WDMH Foundation as your charity of choice so that we can buy much-needed medical equipment for the hospital.

“We want to thank the Kin Club of Russell and everyone who is trying to Catch the Ace. The excitement will continue as soon as it is safe to do so!” said Cindy Ault Peters, the Foundation’s Manager of Direct Mail and Events.
