Tom Crist has made history in Calgary — winning the $40 million Lotto Max, the largest lottery prize ever won in the city. But he doesn’t intend to keep a dime of it.
“The money is going all to charity,” he said when reached Monday.
After his late wife Jan died of cancer in February 2012, he started a family foundation, which he will use to channel the money to cancer-related charities over the years.
He said since winning the jackpot on the May 3 draw, his life hasn’t changed much, but he is glad he can make a difference with his plans to donate.
“I am happy I won because I can donate lot of money to charity,” he said.
