Thunder Bay – LIVING – July has been another huge month for the Thunder Bay 50/50, with the take-home jackpot approaching $500,000 in the final week of ticket sales.
The Thunder Bay 50/50 is a monthly raffle in support of Thunder Bay’s Hospital, with a new Grand Prize draw on the last Friday of every month. Ticket sales for July’s draw will end this Thursday night. Over $3 Million 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, which cares for patients from Thunder Bay and all across Northwestern Ontario. Many pieces of equipment have been funded so far including 3 specialty ICU beds, a BiPAP ventilator, a cardiac & oxygen Monitor, a dental x-ray machine, and more.
