Sault Area Hospital Foundation is proud to announce the launch of their new electronic and online 50/50 raffle. Sales launch November 7th, 2019. This inaugural raffle will include a guaranteed jackpot of at least $50,000. The winner will take home either $50,000 or 50% of gross sales, whichever is larger. Sault Area Hospital Foundation has partnered with Ascend Fundraising Solutions to make this fundraising opportunity possible. Ticket sales will be open across the province of Ontario and proceeds will stay local to support the purchase of medical equipment at Sault Area Hospital.

“We are excited to launch this raffle in our community and raise very important funds to support Sault Area Hospital.” says Teresa Martone, Executive Director, Sault Area Hospital Foundation, “Fundraising for our hospital is very important. It’s the only way we can purchase of new medical equipment required to deliver care at Sault Area Hospital. We are delighted to work with the Ascend Fundraising Solutions team to award one lucky winner at least $50,000 in this first draw and support healthcare in our community.”
