Barrie woman wins more than $42,000 in RVH 50/50 draw

Proceeds to RVH Moments Matter fundraising campaign

A Barrie woman has won the largest jackpot in the Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre’s (RVH) Auxiliary 50/50 draws.

Lorraine – no last name supplied – from Barrie won $42,215.

“I purchased tickets to merely support the cause, but I am a big believer in paying it forward. I am still in shock and very grateful for this win! Thank you!”

Despite the pandemic, the RVH Auxiliary continues to raise funds to support its latest $5 million pledge to the RVH Moments Matter fundraising campaign through the monthly draws.

“The Auxiliary continues to grow this fundraiser and is excited to see how big it can get each month. We are so thrilled to have such great community leaders partnering with us, such as sponsors like Barriston Law in April and Team Keogh in May. These monthly draws continue to be very exciting and more and more members of the community are getting onboard,” said Lise McCourt, Auxiliary president.

Tickets for the next draw are on sale now. You can buy your tickets online (best opened in Google Chrome).

The grand prize – estimated at $9,999 – draw is on May 20. The deadline to enter is 11:59 p.m. on May 19.

There will be three early bird draws, each worth $1000, announced on May 6.
