Who You Help

When you purchase a ticket for the Hope Springs 50/50 Lottery in support of St. Joseph’s Healthcare Foundation, you not only get the chance to win big, but you’ll also be supporting the Hospital in the heart of Hamilton. Healthcare funding from the provincial government doesn’t always cover the significant costs of upgrading patient care rooms, funding vital research studies or purchasing much-needed hospital equipment. That’s why your support of initiatives like our 50/50 lottery are so important. Funds raised will help St. Joe’s continue to offer hope and healing for the patients we’re honoured to serve.
