The lucky ticket number was B-7686324!
We are thrilled to announce that Amanda Merkel won $13,052 in our June 50/50 draw this morning! Amanda, a Stratford resident, works as a Registered Nurse in the St. Marys Memorial Hospital’s Emergency Department. “I have been purchasing 50/50 tickets because I know how expensive hospital equipment is. Buying tickets is a way that I can continue with supporting improvements to patient care while I’m on maternity leave” stated Amanda.
New parents to a nine-month-old, Amanda and her husband plan to save part of the winnings for their daughter’s education. They also have a couple of home renovation projects in mind.
We are blown away by the support that this monthly fundraiser continues to receive! Thank you to everyone who continues to show support by buying tickets and sharing our emails and social media posts.
Funds raised through the Foundation’s 50/50 will be directed towards the upcoming Patient Room Rebuild Project at the St. Marys Memorial Hospital. Major components of the project include a negative pressure room to reduce the spread of infectious diseases such as COVID-19, new modern and efficient headwalls at the top of patient beds, hand hygiene sinks in every room, smart tablets, and patient lifts. Many necessary mechanical and infrastructure upgrades will be made to the rooms at the same time.
Tickets for the July draw are now on sale at www.stmarys5050.com. The July draw will take place on August 12, 2021. Tickets can be purchased by anyone in Ontario who is over the age of 18.
