Cue the spring (confetti) showers, we have a winner!
On March 22 at noon, ticket number A-7139325 was drawn as the GRAND PRIZE WINNER in St. Joe’s Hope Springs 50/50 Lottery. Ernest Y. of Ancaster, Ont., is the lucky bunny who will be taking home a remarkable $35,190!
After receiving a kidney transplant at St. Joe’s in 2019, Ernest says he already felt like he “won the lottery” when his longtime friend David – a dialysis technician at our Hospital – offered to be his organ donor.
“St. Joe’s has been really good to me and supporting my health,” he says, adding he regularly purchases tickets to St. Joe’s 50/50 lottery to give back to the Hospital.
As for what he might do with his jackpot prize, Ernest remains undecided. “It still hasn’t sunk in that I won,” he adds.
Not only is Ernest a winner, but our community is too. The remaining proceeds ($35,190) will be used to fund upgrades to patient care facilities, vital research and much-needed medical equipment at our Hospital in the heart of Hamilton. We are so grateful to everyone who chose to take part in our Hope Springs 50/50 lottery to ensure a healthier future for our community. Wishing you a very hoppy spring from all of us at St. Joe’s Foundation!
