It’s Thursday so that can only mean one thing it’s time to go the Esquire Club for Catch the Ace.
In case you haven’t heard the elusive Ace is still in play. If it’s caught tonight the lucky winner will walk away with approximately $290,000.
Even if the Ace isn’t caught tonight, the second prize still will be a sizable sum. Last week four people shared $40,000. Not a bad haul for a $5.00 ticket and a couple of hours in line.
Here’s what you need to know, tickets which are $5.00 go on sale at 6pm until 9pm, you must be present to win when the draw is made at 9:30pm, or if you are watching the live stream on Facebook you have thirty minutes to collect your prize.
Parking is allowed at United Flooring and OK Tires, please don’t block the bay doors.
Parking is not allowed at the mall next door, Rexall drug store, or Sleepy’s Mattress.
Be prepared to wait in line. Last week the Club announced on their Facebook page that people were already lining up as early as 3pm.
Of course the biggest winners in this seemingly everlasting chase are the local charities, including Big Brothers and Big Sisters who will share a pot of more than $480,000
