Who You Help

When you purchase a ticket for the Holiday Wishes 50/50 Lottery in support of St. Joseph’s Healthcare Foundation, you’ll not only get the chance to win big, but you’ll also be supporting the Hospital that’s been caring for our community throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. 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 medical equipment. That’s why your support of initiatives like our community 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.
