On April 29th, Donna Bos of Echo Bay, ON won a $140,510 jackpot with ticket #CFF-4581480 in the April 2022 SAHF 50/50 Draw!
Donna was one of the first purchasers in the month of April, buying her lucky ticket the morning of April 1st –and it paid off! “I get that first email each month, and I just make sure I act on it or else I’ll forget,” laughed Donna. She mentioned that she’s been purchasing her tickets and making sure she supports Sault Area Hospital Foundation (SAHF) ever since she learned that the hospital depends on community support. “Knowing that we, as a community, purchase the medical equipment at Sault Area Hospital – we just had to support and ensure we’re helping give our doctors, nurses and technicians the tools they need to care for us. It started with donations for us, and now we also enjoy these draws.”
Donna had tears of joy in her eyes when SAHF staff got ahold of her. She indicated she will be sharing some of the money with her family. “I have children and grandchildren that I really look forward to spending some of this money on,” Donna said with a smile. This month’s winner also had their choice of bonus prize – a $30,000 gift certificate to Mio’s Home Fashions or an additional $20,000 cash. Donna and her husband chose to take the gift certificate, and update their home’s furniture.
“When Donna shared her reason for supporting, it was really special for our team,” said Teresa Martone, Executive Director, Sault Area Hospital Foundation. “We are always trying to engage our community, and ensure they know what tremendous impact their support has on local healthcare. Whether you buy 50/50 tickets, attend events or make donations, you are ensuring Sault Area Hospital has the medical equipment needed to keep patients local for care. For some patients, that means being close to family and friends, and for others, that means timely access to life-saving care.”
In addition to the Grand Prize, Robert and Suzanna Pyke of Sarnia, ON were the winners of a $10,000 Early Bird Prize.
