Whenever a contest promises a “lifetime” of something as a prize, there’s some understandable skepticism about whether or not the winner will actually be able to keep collecting until he or she dies. And yet, in at least one instance, the system seems to have worked. For the SkyDome’s 25th anniversary (the stadium is, of course, now known as the Rogers Centre), the Star caught up with Kellie Watson, who won a lifetime’s worth of tickets in a contest held before the venue opened in 1989, and who continues to reap the rewards to this day. “It’s been fabulous,” she told the Star. “I’ve seen every concert I wanted to see plus more.” Faith in the “lifetime guarantees” on our backpacks and handbags? Restored.
