Dreams Do Come True! Dream Vacation Draw proceeds double in 2018


by Jane Adams, Communications Lead, WDMH Foundation

Thank you to the Chesterville Lions Club and the Winchester Downtown Revitalization Committee for once again including the Winchester District Memorial Hospital (WDMH) Foundation in the Dream Vacation Draw. A few lucky ticket buyers will be on their way to dream vacations – and patients at WDMH will be winners too. A portion of the proceeds from each ticket sold by the WDMH Foundation is donated back.

In 2018, the WDMH Foundation received a donation of $1,500, double the amount donated in 2017. The proceeds will be directed to the Foundation’s Family Care Fund, ‘supporting families just like yours’.

Each year, there are six draws held from December to February, including an early bird bonus draw of $350. The five trip draws range from $1,500 to $2,500. Winners will be issued a voucher for the value to redeem for any trip available at Winchester Travel.

“Thank you to the Chesterville Lions Club, Winchester Downtown Revitalization Committee, Winchester Travel and to the many people who buy the Dream Vacation tickets,” notes Cindy Peters, Manager of Direct Mail and Events. “Dreams really do come true, supporting health care close to home!”

Tickets for this year’s draw are selling fast, so please get yours today. They are $50 each. Stop by the Foundation office in the hospital lobby to purchase your tickets, or call 613-774-2422 ext. 6162 for details.

The Family Care Fund does just that – ‘supports families just like yours’. Donations to the Family Care Fund will be used where your gift is needed most: to buy new medical equipment, upgrade existing equipment, or meet other urgent needs at WDMH. We work with our donors to help ensure compassionate, excellent health care.
