And the winner is…

Riverside Foundation for Health Care is excited to announce that the winner of the July Riverside 50/50 electronic raffle is Doug Agar of Fort Frances, ON with the winning ticket number J-6593728. Agar takes home $15,605, with the same amount going to the Foundation. The draw was made Friday, July 30th at 11:00am in the Foundation Office.

‘Well you just made my day!’ Agar exclaimed with screams being heard in the background when he was told the he was this month’s winner. A lifelong resident of Fort Frances, Agar said he began purchasing tickets in March. He purchased tickets for a neighbouring draw first and after doing so learned of the Riverside draw and figured he better support his own district. Although he joked that his family would love for him to buy a pontoon boat, he has no immediate plans on what he is going to do with his winnings.

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 August raffle are now on sale at www.riversidefoundation.ca/5050 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.
