The Five Car Draw is the largest annual fundraising draw for the Sault Area Hospital Foundation. This year, the Foundation selected not only a strong lineup of vehicles to award, but are pleased to announce there will be 15 additional draws of $1,000 to precede the five vehicle draws. All proceeds of the draw will go towards the purchase of a PACS (Picture Archiving Communications System) for the Diagnostic Imaging Department. “This is always the goal, to purchase a piece of equipment that will benefit this community. We love creating some excitement by awarding five individuals with brand new cars, but the ultimate goal is always patient care,” said Joe Orazietti, Honorary Chair of the Five Car Draw. “Everyone wins when you support your hospital, so getting a chance at a brand new car or truck and even some extra cash, that’s a nice little bonus.”
In the past 25 years, 128 cars were won (three draws had six vehicles), $25,000 in cash was awarded and over $3.2 million has been raised to purchase essential medical equipment to benefit the patients that visit the Sault Area Hospital.
Although this year’s capital equipment list has not yet been approved, it is projected that the Foundation will have to increase fundraising efforts to meet the needs of our hospital. The Foundation is the primary source of funding for capital equipment at SAH. “Equipment is essential to all areas of healthcare provided at our hospital. We as a community must ensure that our families and friends have access to quality care when they require it. Supporting the Five Car Draw is one way of doing this. We also ask that you consider including the Sault Area Hospital Foundation as one of the top three charities that you support to ensure that our families, friends, neighbors and colleagues have the best healthcare available closer to home.” Cheryl Pavoni, Executive Director, Sault Area Hospital Foundation.
