New online 50/50 lottery supports world-class patient care at Peterborough Regional Health Center
If you want a chance to win some real money while supporting world-class healthcare at Peterborough Regional Health Center (PRHC), there’s a new lottery in town.
The PRHC Foundation has officially launched its very first online 50/50 lottery.
âWe all want the best possible care for our loved ones, but government funding does not cover all of the hospital’s needs,â said Lesley Heighway, President and CEO of the PRHC Foundation, in a press release. âProceeds from the new 50/50 lottery will help fund the equipment and technology that form the basis of patient care. “

In a 50/50 lottery, half of the money raised through the purchase of tickets goes towards the prizes, the other half going to the non-profit organization that runs the lottery.
Tickets for the PRHC Foundation 50/50 lottery, available online only, can be purchased now at foundationprhc5050.com. Ticket options include 10 tickets for $ 10, 40 tickets for $ 20, 160 tickets for $ 40, or 400 tickets for $ 75.
There is a guaranteed jackpot of $ 9,895, as well as a bonus prize of a Resorts of Ontario gift certificate valued at $ 2,500 (or a cash bonus of $ 2,000).
The big winner will be announced on Thursday, October 28. Two early bird draws will provide additional chances of winning, with cash prizes awarded every hour from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday October 8 and Friday October 22.
Heighway says the 50/50 Lottery is a new way for people to support their hospitals, with proceeds to help close the government’s funding gap at CHRP.
âThey will help bring vital new services to our region and allow PRHC to attract the best doctors, nurses and staff to our hospital,â said Heighway. âWhen people buy their tickets, they will have the added comfort of knowing they are supporting exceptional patient care, close to home, for patients across our region.
