Need a little extra cash?
Every pay period you and the Foundation have a chance to win over $12,000 each. The pot continues to grow every month as more and more people enter the lottery. So be sure to tell your colleagues.
Tickets are only $5 each. If you have not already signed up: sign up now to be eligible for the 2017/2018 draws. 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.
Draws happen on the last Friday of the month – next draw is December 29th.
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. We will let you know about the 2016/17 funds.
