On December 30th at 11am, Randy and Lori Perin of Goulais River, ON won $27,385 in the Sault Area Hospital Foundation’s (SAHF) December electronic and online 50/50 draw. One of their numbers, B-1336506, was drawn electronically and their ticket was validated prior to the New Year.
“We were at the Station Mall on one of the days the volunteers were there selling and the growing prize caught our eye. We had purchased before so decided to grab a few tickets and then on Monday I received a call from the staff at the Foundation. It’s a surreal experience to win.” Randy Perin explains. “No one expects to win. Seeing a prize like that and dreaming of what you’d do with the extra cash is great, but when I bought my tickets I was just doing my part to help support the hospital my entire family uses“. When asked about plans for their winnings the two settled on treating themselves to a little bit of travel and then taking some time to make sure they spend it right. This includes making a donation to Sault Area Hospital Foundation to help purchase medical equipment and support local healthcare needs.
There is another winner in the Sault Area Hospital Foundation 50/50 draws; our community. Half of the proceeds stay with the Foundation to purchase the medical equipment needed at our local hospital. “When you are buying your tickets and the prize is growing, so is the support our Foundation is receiving. Your support impacts local care. Every dollar raised is helping provide outstanding care right here at our hospital. Your support allows us to advance technology, support essential services and keep patients right here in our community,” says Teresa Martone, Executive Director, Sault Area Hospital Foundation.
