The Pembroke Regional Hospital Foundation’s 3rd Annual Spring Lotto for Healthcare Announces Winner!

The 3rd annual online Spring Lotto for Healthcare did not disappoint, raising $148,925 for the Pembroke Regional Hospital Foundation’s (PRH) Cancer Care Campaign!  


The grand prize draw was held on Thursday, June 22nd at 12pm and the winner of the 2023 Princecraft Pontoon boat or $40,000 cash prize, Bart Neville of Petawawa was announced on site at RG Dick Plummer live on Facebook. 


The Grand Prize winner, Bart, was so excited to have won and made the decision to take the $40,000 Cash Prize!   Bart added, “we will use the money wisely and pay it forward in the community.”


This year an exclusive 50/50 draw was also offered to Spring Lotto ticket purchasers and the winner of that draw was, Joanne Nelson of Elliot Lake, who took home the jackpot of $12,635!


“We would like to say a big thank you to all the incredible local sponsors who helped make this possible, MyFM, Smitty’s Home Hardware, Ben Hokum & Sons, The Brick Pembroke, Mortgages By Lindsey, Perri Rae Boell & Associates – The Cooperators, McCarthy Fuels, Frank’s Electric, Mark Ryan – Via Capitale, Hamilton Haulage & Landscaping and Dick Plummer Marine for all your support,” says Leigh Costello, PRHF Community Fundraising Specialist. 


PRH Foundation’s Executive Director, Roger Martin states. “We are so excited, that we have 2 winners for Spring Lotto this year, with the addition of the 50/50 add on lottery, and even more excited that the winner of the boat or cash was from the local area, as schedules are a little easier to arrange.  There was some great energy surrounding the Spring Lottery, and we feel that it is because everyone is affected by cancer somehow, and this is a way that someone can make a difference right here at home, while having the chance at a total of 5 prizes including the Grand Prize & 50/50. These dollars will help give us a boost as we get closer to the completion of our Cancer Care Campaign which has a goal of $3.5 million dollars, and is currently at 92% of our goal. Every dollar will make a difference to a cancer patient and our front line workers!”


In addition to the grand prize draw, three Early bird draws were also held as follows:  

Early Bird #1 – Outdoor Patio Package, won by Anne Barr

Early Bird #2 – Apple Package, won by Sarah Chard

Early Bird #3 – Furniture Shopping Spree, won by Bennett Blackwell
