Congratulations to our recent ‘Won’ Vancouver 50/50 Staff Lottery winners!

Will you be next?  Did you sign up last October? You need to sign up every fiscal year.

Next draw is on April 28.

There is nothing better than getting a winning message from the Won Vancouver 50/50 Staff Lottery. Recent winners in the 50/50 Lottery got their good news phone call, and each won more than $3500 each. One of them is going to Italy with her winnings…that could be you! A full list of all previous winners is available on the Won Vancouver intranet page.

Who will win on April 28? It could be you…if you have a ticket! Sign up once and you are in every draw for the rest of the 2016/17 lottery year. But please note that if you signed up last year, it doesn’t roll over. You need to sign up every fiscal year. So, as of October 2016, if you haven’t reapplied, you don’t have a ticket or a chance to win up to $12,500!

Buy your ticket(s) today to be entered in the next draw. The more staff with tickets, the bigger each share of the 50/50. So be sure to tell your colleagues! Sign up here: 2016-17 lottery registration.

Where does the other half of the “50” go? It goes to the VGH Foundation, to support the funding of equipment for our hospitals and community-based programs. Proceeds from the 2015-16 Won Vancouver 50/50 Staff Lottery meant a contribution of $163,384 to the Foundation! In turn, the Foundation purchased four ventilators for use at VGH and George Pearson Centre.

So what are our recent winners going to do with their cash? Here’s what they had to say:

What does winning the 50/50 lottery mean to you?

Lisa Runde – won $3607.50 PP06

I just got notification on March 7th that I was in the draw – I had skipped a year. I never expected to win. I just thought I was donating to a good cause. So it was more than a little exciting to get the call saying I’d won!

Sukhraj Kaila – won $3847.50 PP07

Sukhraj Kaila – I started in the 50/50 about a year and a half ago. We want to go travelling – that was my goal. And I needed travel money. And what better way to get travel money than by helping a good cause. We had booked a trip to Italy and an hour later I got the call that I had won! I’m thrilled.

Nikki Zawadzki – won $3567.50 in PP05

Nikki is unavailable for comment, but we will catch up with her at a later date!

The next 50/50 Staff Lottery is April 28!

What would you do with your winnings? There are two (or three) chances to win every month (depending on the corresponding pay periods) and you only need to sign up once every fiscal year to participate. The more tickets sold means the larger the winnings for staff and more funding for the Foundation.
