Inaugural online 50/50 health raffle has a winner

Barbara S. from Owen Sound is the big winner in the inaugural online 50/50 raffle in support of Grey Bruce Health Services.

Barbara who says she “never wins anything” is taking home $17,730. When asked why she purchased a ticket Barbara said “… because even if I didn’t win, I knew I’d be helping the hospital.”

With proceeds split 50/50 that means $17,730 will also go towards the purchase of a second MRI machine. Last year 9,597 MRI scans were performed. Two machines will help reduce wait times, clear backlogs, and ensure availability for emergency situations (such as when a patient is having a stroke).

The online 50/50 lottery will be drawn monthly. For more information, visit Buy your tickets and get in for the early bird prizes! June’s jackpot ticket deadline is June 29, 2023 at 11:59 pm. Draw to take place June 30, 2023 at 10:00 am.

You win. Local healthcare wins.
