Time is running out to get your tickets for Comox Valley Hospice Society’s Ultimate Fifty-50 Raffle. The prize is already over $12,000 and still growing until the winner’s draw at 7:30pm on Saturday, May 9th at the Westerly Hotel.
Tickets which are only $10 each, make great customer appreciation or employee recognition gifts. And, they’re a perfect addition to make Mother’s Day special! Graeme Sargent, on the board of CVHS, says, “Knowing that everyone likes a chance at winning and many people like to support Hospice but cannot afford to attend gala events, we wanted to create a fundraiser that is fun and affordable for nearly anyone to participate. With a maximum of 5,000 tickets being sold, odds of winning are great when compared to many other fundraisers or the lottery.”
Audrey Craig, President of CVHS explains, “People who need hospice care in our community win from the donations. And, someone in this community will really win big pot of money at the draw on May 9th. People need to know that only the nursing services at the residential hospice opening in July will be funded by the health authority. This leaves the additional compassionate care for people who are dying, their loved ones who are grieving and their caregivers to be made possible by the generosity of this community. Hospice needs your help!”
This weekend tickets will be available at Art Knapp’s Plantland on Saturday and Sunday (May 2 and 3) from 9:30 a.m.—4 p.m. and on Sunday, May 3 at Canadian Tire from 9:30 a.m.— 4 p.m.. Tickets are also regularly available at Coastal Community Credit Union, Comox Valley Hydraulics, Serious Coffee, Blinds, Bubble Boutique, Shoe Biz, Blue Touque, Riverside Nissan, Traction Heavy Duty and White Spot.
