And the winner is…

Riverside Foundation for Health Care is excited to announce that the winner of the June Riverside 50/50 electronic raffle is Janet Johnston of Thunder Bay, ON with the winning ticket number I-5933003. Johnston takes home $21,592, with the same amount going to the Foundation. The draw was made Wednesday, June 30 at 11 a.m. in the Foundation Office.

Although Johnston resides in Thunder Bay, she has a cottage down Oak Grove Rd in Rainy River and was encouraged to purchase tickets since she spends time and has friends in the area. Having purchased since the first draw, Johnston stated that it was great to have contributed and even better to win, and will continue to support the raffle moving forward. Being in the middle of some landscaping projects, her winnings will be put to good use to help offset some of the costs of labour and materials.

Since November, the Foundation has given away over $200,000 in 50/50 prize winnings. That means over $200,000 has also gone to the Foundation for the purchase of medical equipment. Tickets for the July raffle are now on sale at at a cost of 5 for $5, 20 for $10 or our best deal, 100 for $20. If you prefer to purchase offline, please call the Foundation Office at 274-4803 to make arrangements.
