Moira Hennen is still in shock. She lives in Kelowna and teaches in Penticton. Moira won Castanet's Wicked WINter WINdfall contest.
"You mean I get it all?", Hennen said when she came to claim her prize. "Really, $10,000 worth of stuff? Wow!"
She says her family has plans for the prizes.
"My son phoned, he's been eyeing up my skis (Rossignol S7 from Fresh Air Concept). My daughter was looking at the gift certificate ($500) from the (Orchard Park) mall. We'll have to see who comes to Big White with us, we do have grandkids."
Hennon says the timing of the big win is perfect.
