I'd like to help out some family and friends, and I've always wanted to tour the Canadian Rockies on the Rocky Mountaineer train
- Erin Black, SAHF 50/50 Grand Prize Winner
Erin has a connection to Sault Ste. Marie through a relative, and has been supporting SAHF 50/50 since December of 2020. She was thrilled to get the call, and already has a plan for her 6-digit jackpot.
“I'd like to help out some family and friends, and I've always wanted to tour the Canadian Rockies on the Rocky Mountaineer train (the one that has the glass domed cars) as well as take an Arctic cruise,” she relayed, via email. Erin also has some practical plans, sharing, “It's less exciting, but I also plan to save a chunk of the winnings either towards a potential down payment on a home or retirement savings.”
Erin wasn’t the only winner this month, with proceeds from the draw coming back to support Sault Area Hospital – purchasing critical equipment.
“Thanks to the 50/50 draw, new equipment is arriving at Sault Area Hospital all the time,” said Teresa Martone, Executive Director, Sault Area Hospital Foundation. “Just this month, we saw a brand new, multi-million dollar MRI unit come online at our hospital – and our lottery purchasers have been a key part of that equipment arriving! We are so grateful for the continued support of our community for these draws. The funds raised every month make outstanding care possible at Sault Area Hospital.”
