The line-up of people started early again this afternoon as folks pulled out their favourite lawn chair and waited along the sidewalk on Second Line, the patio, club and general vicinity of George Wellington Esquire Club to buy tickets on the ‘Catch The Ace’ fundraiser. In fact, the line-up stretched as far as the Mac’s store on Henrietta St. earlier today.
The Progressive Jackpot is $447,607.50. As of tonight, the George Wellington Esquire Club has raised just over $750,000.00 for local charities.
When Nancy Slater pulled the Queen of Clubs there was a collective sigh of relief. The Ace of Spades is still safely tucked into one of only four envelopes left.
‘Catch the Ace’ continues Thursday, September 13th and ONNtv’s Alex Parr will be there again.
