How can you help? Buy a lucky Lotto for Life ticket for $100 in support of the Emergency Expansion, only 5,000 tickets will be sold for 76 prizes. The Emergency Department expansion has been a top priority for the Foundation over the past two years as they push to raise $4 million for essential equipment to help medical professionals deliver care to Central Island. The current ED was designed for 15,000 visits a year, but saw more than 55,000 last year. The new expansion will triple the size of the existing space, use LEED Gold standards, and offer both emergency and psychiatric services in one Department.
Last year the Foundation was thrilled to award Janice Malainey, a newly retired career-officer with the Canadian Forces, the $100,000 Grand Prize. This year, more than $220,000 worth of amazing prizes are available, including fishing adventures to Haida Gwaii, new vehicles, home entertainment systems, and the $100,000 Grand Prize. Early bird cut-off is February 15th for the February 24th Early Bird Draw and March 23rd is the final cutoff for the March 31st Final Draw.
