This year’s virtual Hey Day 50-50 Draw has already been a historic first for the Kemptville District Hospital Auxiliary as an online fundraiser. This is also the first year in which multiple 50-50 Draws will take place, and the first time in which a second early bird bonus draw is awarded.
The winner of the second $500 bonus draw was Brian Meloche. This one- time second bonus draw was sponsored by EQ Homes.
The Grand Prize draw, held on July 27, is estimated at over $7,400. If you didn’t get the jackpot this month, make sure you purchase your tickets for next month’s draw. There will be a monthly draw through December, so purchase tickets each month, since they will not be rolling over month-to-month.
Participating in the Hey Day 50-50 online draw supports the purchase of equipment and technology for our Kemptville District Hospital, allowing all residents access to better health care than government funding alone could provide. It truly is a win-win. To purchase your tickets, visit www.kdha5050.ca.
