Press release

Riverside Foundation for Health Care is excited to announce that the winners of the Spring 50/50 jackpot are Karen and Richard Rob of Fort Frances, ON with the winning ticket number JJ-2330026. Robs are the lucky recipient of $10,368 with the same amount going to the Foundation. The draw was made Tuesday, April 30th at 11:00am in the Foundation Office.

Karen and Richard have been dedicated supporters of the Riverside 5050, having purchased tickets for every draw since it began in the summer of 2020, stating that they always viewed it as a donation. They appreciate knowing that their ticket purchase is staying local and supporting Riverside. Having never thought they would win, as according to them, they never win anything, their windfall is still sinking in and they have no immediate plans on how to enjoy their winnings. Winning hasn’t stopped them from continuing their support, and they already have their May tickets purchased.

Tickets for the May 50/50 are available now at or by calling the Foundation Office to arrange for offline sales. This month only receive 100 bonus numbers at the $40 price point for a total of 350 chances to win. Ticket bundles are also available at $5, $10 and $20 per package.
