Roy Coles knows finally what it feels like to have the luck of the draw.
The Nanoose Bay resident bought five tickets to the Harley-Davidson raffle hosted by Langford and Sooke fire departments. Each ticket cost him $20 and they were thrown in a barrel along with all of the 2,878 tickets sold.
Other than Coles being presented with a 2012 Harley-Davidson FLD Switchback, Muscular Dystrophy Canada will be awarded more than $30,000 raised from the raffle.
“I think it’s very fortunate we get this opportunity to participate in a raffle like this and not only be the winner, but to have the proceeds to to help out a good charity,” Coles said.
The second place winner won the trailer that the motorcycle was towed on to various events over the summer.
Other than winning a meat draw, this is the first contest Coles has ever won, he said.
