[/sws_pullquote_right] “Each year we see how excited people get in the days leading up to the Grand Prize Draw,” share the Mascarins.  “As exciting as it is for us to give away a brand-new Volkswagen Beetle to the lucky winner, it’s equally exciting to be able to support crucial developments to our cardiac care programs here in Northwestern Ontario.”

All funds from this year’s raffle are directed to the Northern Cardiac Fund of the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Foundation.  Already, generous donors have been instrumental in bringing 24/7 angioplasty, the gold-standard of care, to patients in Northwestern Ontario, through the opening of a second cardiac catheterization lab in 2011.

Furthermore, this raffle has recently supported intravascular ultrasound, which allows interventional cardiologists to examine the artery from the inside, giving them a clear view of blockages within the artery, and the ability to make more informed decisions for better patient care.

“Knowing that this raffle has made such an impact on cardiac patient care here in the Northwest reaffirms our decision to support the Northern Cardiac Fund,” said the Mascarins.  “What better investment could we make then one that ultimately saves the lives of our family, friends and community members?”
