“I purchased tickets because it’s health care. I have family in Kingston who need the services the hospitals provide. My husband also had his eye surgery in Kingston for cataracts. It was an excellent experience,” says Marilyn Murray, UHKF 50/50 jackpot winner. “I’m going to save it for now. Family and friends will be just as excited that I won and will be happy for me. Buy a ticket. Support health care. You may be lucky enough to win, just like me. I am so happy!”
“We are really excited to be re-launching this program,” says Candace Russell, Healthcare Engagement Associate at UHKF. “It is such a great way for everyone in the community to support our hospitals and have a little fun at the same time. You never know, you just might be our next winner!”
In support of Kingston Health Sciences Centre and Providence Care, the UHKF 50/50 lottery has awarded close to $348,000 in prizes since the fundraiser launched in May 2021.
Funds from this new fundraiser will support much-needed equipment, programs, education, healthcare facilities, and research that benefit the 500,000 people living in Kingston, southeastern Ontario, and beyond.
