About 20 years ago, the movie Spitfire Grill, told the story of a contest designed to find a new owner for a local restaurant after the owner falls sick. In the decades since the films release several of these contests have popped up to find new owners for all kinds of homes and properties around North America. The most recent is happening now in Millarville, just south of Calgary for a 5000 square foot home which could yours for just a contest entry fee of $25 and some creative penmanship. Alla Wagner is the homeowner organizing the contest and whomever wins can take over her house, but she does have some hopes and aspirations for that eventual winner. To find out more, Russell travelled to Millarville to speak spoke with Alla Wagner in her home.
