Clayton Hinkey will be donating $10,000 to a local non-profit in the Border City.
Hinkey, who won a 50/50 raffle at an Edmonton Oilers game earlier in 2016, was initially going to be unable to claim his prize, due to being late in collecting the money. However, after decision made by the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation, Hinkey will be getting the money, of which $30,000 will be going to charity.
According to Global News in Edmonton, Hinkey said the decision was a blessing, and that he was happy things were able to work out. He will be giving $10,000 each to the Stollery Children’s Hospital, the AARC Centre in Calgary, and the Lloydminster Sexual Assault and Information Centre.
The centre was not able to be reached for comment by the time this story was published, and as more information becomes available, this story will be updated.
