While the pandemic has prevented the Pembroke Regional Hospital Foundation from hosting so many of its traditional fundraisers, the online Spring Lotto for Healthcare has been a successful alternative! During these unprecedented times, continued support of our hospitals is more important than ever and fundraisers like the Spring Lotto did not disappoint, raising $228,375 for the Pembroke Regional Hospital’s Cancer Care Campaign!
“We would like to thank everyone – sponsors and ticket buyers alike – who supporting this fundraising initiative and helped contribute a substantial amount of money to our Cancer Care Campaign,” said PRH President and CEO Pierre Noel. “Each patient who undergoes care in our facility stands to benefit from the outcome of this campaign and improvements to the patient experience.”
The grand prize draw was held June 23rd at 12 noon and the winner of the 2021 Princecraft Pontoon boat, Leo Dunphy of Cloyne was announced on site at RG Dick Plummer live on Facebook.
“We would like to say a big thank you to all the incredible sponsors who helped make this possible; Perri-Rae Boell & Associates, The Co-operators, Dunbar Home Inspections, Petawawa Toyota, Smitty’s Home Hardware, Lindsey Cupelli from the Mortgage Advisors, RG Dick Plummer, Mulvihill Drug Mart, Chad Cliche Professional Drywaller, Assante Wealth Management, Ben Hokum & Son and MyFM, for all your support,” said Leigh Costello, PRHF Community Fundraising Specialist.
The PRH Foundation’s Executive Director, Roger Martin said, “We are so excited for the winner, Leo Dunphy, and even more excited that we were able to give away a prize that is so hard to even find these days to purchase. It felt like there was some amazing energy in Renfrew County, as people were able to give back to a great cause while trying to win something most of us simply dream about. These dollars will help give us a boost in our Cancer Care Campaign which has a goal of $1.65 million. Every dollar will make a difference to a cancer patient and our front line workers!”
In addition to the grand prize draw, two Early Bird draws were also held. The first was held on May 18th for a Family Bike Package sponsored by Assante Wealth Management and the lucky winner was Emily Malette! The second was held on June 9th for a Can-AM DS90 Youth Four Wheeler sponsored by Ben Hokum and Son, and the lucky winner was Paul Lair!
