Markham Stouffville Hospital (MSH) Foundation’s Fall 50/50 Raffle is back on Tuesday, September 26, 2023. The lottery will take place online only with an Early Bird Prize of $1,500 and a
guaranteed Grand Prize of $10,000.
The MSH Foundation 50/50 Raffle ensures that Oak Valley Health’s MSH is equipped with all top-priority needs. Thousands of patients and families depend on MSH every year. By 2030, MSH will serve a population of close to 500,000. This means welcoming as many as 6,000 babies a year, treating up to 115,000 patients in our Emergency Department and seeing the needs double for cancer care, surgery, and mental health. Every dollar raised through the 50/50 Raffle ensures patients can receive the critical care they need, when they need it.
“Government funding isn’t enough to cover the cost of all critical life-saving equipment,” says Allan Bell, Vice President, Community Relations & Corporate Partnerships, MSH Foundation. “Generous community support of MSH Foundation’s 50/50 raffle is essential to provide exceptional patient care and will help bring a lifetime of care closer to home.”
MSH Foundation’s 50/50 Raffle began in October 2021 and has raised $272,630 to date. Community support has helped purchase a state-of-the-art echocardiography system for cardiac patients, a C-Arm used in our new Interventional Radiology Suite for minimally invasive surgery, and also helped equip the newly relocated Gale & Graham Wright Breast Health Centre to allow more patients to be seen in a comfortable space.
“This is our community, we need to support each other, and we need to receive care,” says Joan Bordash, 2023 Winter 50/50 Raffle Grand Prize winner and lactation consultant at Oak Valley Health. “I’ve not only been an employee here, but I’ve also been a patient. We should support this hospital to be able to receive the top-notch care that we provide.”
The Early Bird Prize deadline is Thursday, October 19, 2023 at 10 a.m. and the Grand Prize deadline is Thursday, November 2, 2023 at 10 a.m. Tickets are available for purchase at mshf5050.ca.
