Riverside Foundation for Health Care is excited to announce that the winner of the June Riverside 50/50 electronic raffle is Shelley Hyatt of Alberton, Ont. with the winning ticket number R-4394698. Hyatt takes home $11,175, with the same amount going to the Foundation. The draw was made Monday, May 31 at 11 a.m. at the Foundation Office.

Hyatt has been supporting the raffle for some time now, stating that it’s a great way to support Riverside. Being a resident of Alberton where a suspected tornado touched down on Monday evening, luck was on her side twice; having missed the tornado and winning the lottery. She plans to have a new deck built with her winnings and has indicated that she is going to make a donation to the Foundation. In addition, just because she won, she won’t stop supporting the lottery and already has her tickets for the June draw.
