Igniting Healthcare 50/50 FUNdraiser

Our 3rd annual Igniting Healthcare 50/50 FUNdraiser, in partnership with Maple City Homes, kicks off on Thursday May 20th with a $10,000 guaranteed jackpot!  Proceeds from this year’s raffle will support cardiac care at CKHA through the purchase of new Electrocardiograph machines at CKHA’s Chatham and Wallaceburg sites.  Last year’s Igniting Healthcare 50/50 FUNdraiser was a huge success, breaking its own record from the previous year for the largest online charitable 50/50 lottery in Southwestern Ontario, raising $345,740!  Emily from Highgate had the winning ticket and took home a jackpot of $172,870!  Don’t miss your chance to win BIG!  Visit

31st Annual Christmas Wish Tree
Presented by
RBC Wealth Management Dominion Securities
Karen Ewald, VP & Portfolio Manager

Our 31st Annual Christmas Wish Tree Campaign was an overwhelming success raising over $200,000 and more than double the campaign goal of $100,000! Proceeds supported  CKHA’s new Urology Services through the purchase of a new Bladder Scanner for CKHA’s Wallaceburg Site, and a new Urodynamics Machine for CKHA’s Chatham Site.  Members of the community make a donation in memory of a loved one, and receive a light on the tree in recognition.   Our memorial trees were lit up in Chatham and Wallaceburg during a special virtual ceremony in partnership with YourTV Chatham-Kent!  This year’s tradition also recognized four special honourees from our community.

For the first time in our 30 year history, we received a matching gift for Christmas Wish Tree!  Bob & Robin Hockney, retired local business owners who have lived in Chatham-Kent for 31 years, wanted to do something to give back to their community.  They matched the first $25,000 donated to the campaign, and then another $25,000 for Giving Tuesday!
