The Lotto for Life win comes at an opportune time for Janice. She recently retired to Parksville after more than two decades serving as an officer in the Canadian Forces. The win will make the shift to civilian life much easier. In addition, she would like to celebrate her parents’ (Wendy and Bill Malainey) 50th Wedding Anniversary this summer.
All proceeds from the Lotto for Life will benefit the Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation’s effort to raise $4 million towards the purchase of essential equipment for the $36.9 million Emergency Expansion project. The new Emergency Department will triple in size and serve families from Bowser to Ladysmith, nearly 160,000 people, and will open in 2012. NRGH is your community hospital and all proceeds stay at home.
