And the winner is...



Riverside Foundation for Health Care is excited to announce that the winner of the December Riverside 50/50 electronic raffle and the $25,830 that goes along with it is Chelsea Carlson. The draw was made on December 30 at 11:00 am. Born and raised in Fort Frances, Carlson now resides in Kingston, ON while completing a PhD in Physics at Queen’s University. When told that she was the winner, Carlson asked ‘is this a joke?’ and remained shocked throughout the call.

With just minutes to spare, Carlson’s mother purchased tickets for her at 8:15pm on December 30. Carlson noted that after 10 years of schooling, these winnings will make it easier for herself and her partner Evan to start their lives together debt free. They plan to give a portion of the winnings to a charitable cause and invest the rest to put towards a future down payment on a home.

Tickets for the January raffle are now on sale at at a cost of 3 for $5, 10 for $10 or our best deal, 60 for $20. If you prefer to purchase offline, call the Foundation Office at 274-4803 to make arrangements. As always, thank you to West End Motors and Gillons’ Insurance for kicking off the prize pot with $250 each for a guaranteed prize of $500.

Riverside Foundation would like to congratulate our grand prize winner and thank everyone who purchased tickets. Your support will help to purchase much needed medical equipment that ensures we can keep health care close to home.
