TBRHSF 50/50 Draw climbs to a jackpot over $450,000!


Thunder Bay – One lucky person will end the week with a big win!

The Thunder Bay 50/50’s May jackpot has passed $450,000 cash, and will continue to grow until ticket sales end tonight at 11:59 p.m. Over two million dollars has been won since the 50/50 launched in January.

Each Thunder Bay 50/50 ticket helps fund the highest priority equipment needs at the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre. Recently three specialized ICU beds, a BiPAP ventilator, and a defibrillator were purchased thanks to supporters of the raffle. The higher the jackpot raises, the more equipment can be funded to bring better healthcare to your friends and family – not only from Thunder Bay, but from across Northwestern Ontario, who come to our Hospital for care.

When asked why they support the Thunder Bay 50/50, ticket purchasers shared that the cause is close to their hearts:

“I am not a regular lottery ticket buyer but this is local and all proceeds are going to our regional hospital. I like to support local even if it is in a small way.” – Kathleen C.

I think it’s a great way to fund and update medical equipment. My Mother was a cardiac patient and was able to have stents put in after a heart attack. It gave us a few more years with her. She loved buying raffle tickets.” – Nancy M.

“This is our regional hospital. I reside in Geraldton and much of our/my medical care is received at/thru the hospital. My ticket purchases are a fun way to support future medical needs. Good luck to all!!” – Susan V.
