It was a packed night at the Legion on Friday night as the final draw for Chase the Ace took place with the winner taking home the grand prize of $6000. 

People started arriving as early as 3:30 p.m. to save their seats with many keeping busy playing cards and different games until tickets went on sale at 6 p.m.

They sold out pretty quickly and the draw began, on a normal week only one ticket would be drawn but as they had reached the max jackpot on Friday a winner had to be chosen. 

There were only 17 cards left in the deck to pick from and it took eight people to try to find the Ace of Spades, and with only nine cards left to choose from that is exactly what Carrie-Ann Baron-Provo did!

When asked what she would do with her big win she has a couple of plans, "we'll pay some bills of course but I also want to take my husband on a second honeymoon." 

Carrie-Ann and her husband Sheldon, who served 23 years in the air force, were not new to Chase the Ace on Friday night. 

"We have been coming for a few weeks, and when my number was called he wasn't at the table but once I found the Ace he came up and gave me a big kiss on the cheek." 

It was a great night and event held by the Legion with all hands on deck volunteering to sell 50/50 and Chase the Ace tickets.
