Campbell River resident Linda Young has all the luck.
Young was selected as the lucky winner of a barbecue for up to 40 of her close friends and family in Coca-Cola’s Summer BBQ Bash.
Young entered the Coke-sponsored contest while at Campbell River’s Save-On-Foods on a whim.
“There was a ballot box in the store and I entered,” Young said.
Her prize is a barbecue with $20,000 worth of food and beverages from Overwaitea Food Group.
She plans to hold her barbecue in September at Miracle Beach.
Young was chosen from among participants from all over B.C. and Alberta.
But that shouldn’t come as a surprise.
When it comes to contests, Young has the luck of the Irish.
Just over five years ago, Young won a $5,000 sailing trip down the Strait of Georgia, courtesy of Two Oceans Winery.
At that time, Young and her husband Jim were celebrating their wedding anniversary at the Royal Coachman Neighbourhood Pub and stopped by the pub’s liquor store.
There, she filled out an entry form for the sailing trip and two months later, Young was informed she had won.
The couple, who enter contests all the time, have also won a beach umbrella from Bud Lite, a cooler, a bike and a Canucks jersey, among other smaller prizes.
