Want a chance at winning a new vehicle, $1,000 cash or a $500 gas card? The Sault Area Hospital Foundation is proud to announce the 27th annual 5 Car Draw.

This draw, in support of healthcare for the patients of the Algoma District, offers a chance at 20 great prizes at still only $25.00 a ticket. “We are extremely fortunate to have the support we do for this draw. We have never raised the ticket price in 27 years and if you break it down, the price of the cars continues to climb yet we are still able to run a successful draw that raises a significant amount of money to purchase medical equipment needed at our Hospital,” said Joe Orazietti, Honorary Chair of the Five Car Draw. “We have built this draw on the support of our communities, across Algoma, so please buy your ticket and let’s kick off the summer right.”

The proceeds will be used from this draw to help purchase a new CT Scanner for the Diagnostic Imaging Department at Sault Area Hospital. One of the two scanners currently in use is reaching 10 years of service and will be replaced this year. The CT Scanners at SAH run 24 hours, 7 days a week to diagnose all types of ailments, illnesses and injuries in patients from across the Algoma District. The scanners run over 20,000 tests annually and it will cost $1.9 million to replace the eldest of the two.
