The Pembroke Regional Hospital Foundation is excited to announce that the Ace of Spades has been “caught” in their first Catch the Ace Lottery supporting the Cancer Care Campaign. The lucky winner, Elizabeth Rosamond of Pembroke, took home an amazing prize of $121,088! Ms. Rosamond’s winning ticket #BB-2160463 was drawn from the electronic generator and she chose Card #10 which revealed the Ace of Spades!
She expressed her shock and excitement, telling the Foundation staff, “I couldn’t believe it. My daughter called me to say look at your phone, I think you won the jackpot, sure enough I did! I am so excited to purchase a new roof, windows and doors for my house. I can’t wait for the next Catch the Ace to keep playing.”
“We are so excited for Elizabeth, as she has been an amazing supporter of Catch the Ace as well as other fundraising initiatives of the Foundation going back as far as the MRI Campaign. I not only wanted to congratulate her, but thank her for supporting Catch the Ace and of course the Cancer Care Campaign,” said Foundation Executive Director, Roger Martin. Over 28 weeks, the lottery raised an incredible $187,831 for the Pembroke Regional Hospital Foundation’s Cancer Care Campaign. This campaign will fund the expansion and upgrades to the Pharmacy and Chemotherapy/ Medical Day Care Unit at PRH.
Pierre Noel, PRH President and CEO said, “We are incredibly grateful to our community for supporting our hospital’s first Catch the Ace draw and so happy to see that Liz Rosamond, a member of our health care team, was the lucky person to catch the Ace of Spades and win the jackpot. All funds raised from this first draw are being put towards our Cancer Care Campaign which stands to benefit so many in our region who come to PRH for cancer care.”
The PRH Foundation is happy to announce they will be hosting a second Catch the Ace Lottery very soon! Leigh Costello, Community Fundraising Specialist, added, “We are so thrilled with the success of our first Catch the Ace Lottery and how the community rallied around to support this event and cause. We couldn’t have done it without all our volunteers and community supporters who helped us spread the word and sell tickets each week at our drive-thru kiosk and at the hospital. We are so excited to see local residents get behind our next draw.”
Stay tuned for updates regarding “Catch the Ace 2.0” for the Pembroke Regional Hospital, which will be announced on their Facebook page in the coming weeks. “Thank you to ALL our supporters, and we will see you when the deck gets shuffled for the next
Catch the Ace folks. Stay healthy and stay safe,” Mr. Martin said.
