A last-minute ticket purchase for the Windsor Regional Hospital Foundation’s Mega Monthly 50/50 Draw turned out to be a great idea for a staff member at Hotel-Dieu Grace Healthcare and former staff member at Windsor Regional Hospital for nine years.
Terez Balogh purchased the ticket Friday morning, only to learn a few hours later, her ticket number was randomly chosen to win $98,465.
“I am thrilled to win the monthly WRH Lottery. I never win anything – this is a first! I am also happy to support the purchase of medical equipment for acute care – so important at this time,” she says.
Balogh plans to use the winnings for her daughter’s university tuition.
Proceeds from the Mega Monthly 50/50 Draw support the purchase of medical equipment at Windsor Regional Hospital. January’s lottery supports the purchase of a bronchoscopy cart for WRH. The Bronchoscopy Cart is a system that consists of a screen, processor, light source, and cart and provides physicians maneuverability, visualization, and versatility during tracheobronchial access and supports with pulmonary diagnosis and treatment. The cart can be used in clinics, operating rooms, critical care, and endoscopy.
The next draw begins on Monday, February 1, 2021 with an $8,999 guaranteed prize amount. We will be drawing a $1,000 Early Bird prize winner on Wednesday, February 17th, and our next GRAND PRIZE winner on Friday, February 26th. Head over to www.wrh5050.ca to buy your tickets for the next draw.
