Together, we raised $345,740!
Congratulations Emily Geroux,
Winner of the $172,870 Jackpot!
Emily Geroux of Highgate, Ontario had this year’s lucky winning ticket (#1107940) for the record-setting Igniting Healthcare 50/50 FUNdraiser. Emily checked her ticket Friday morning after noticing a winner had not yet been announced.
“I realized I had the number and I just said “I won! I won! I won!””
Even in the midst of a pandemic, with many events and activities being cancelled throughout Chatham-Kent, limiting our opportunity to get out and sell tickets, this community really responded – beating last year’s record-setting total amount raised!
When the Igniting Healthcare 50/50 FUNdraiser was launched on June 17th tickets were only available online, and we continued with online-only sales for two-thirds of the campaign.
Over three quarters of tickets were purchased online, and just under half of all tickets sold were $50 tickets. Wow!
It wasn’t until our municipality moved into stage 3 of re-opening that we were able to partner with local businesses to set up in-person ticket selling locations across our community. We had lineups of people everywhere we went and we felt your excitement as the jackpot grew bigger each day!
It was truly amazing to spend time in our rural communities and meet so many passionate supporters of our hospital!
Ticket sales came from all corners of Chatham-Kent, making this a true community-wide initiative!

We couldn’t be more grateful for the incredible support of this community in helping us raise $172,870 for CKHA’s new Urology services – THANK YOU Chatham-Kent!
Proceeds from this draw are supporting the purchase of a C-Arm – a specialized diagnostic imaging machine that uses x-ray technology.
THANK YOU SPONSORS
Thank you Chatham-Kent for your continued support and generosity!
Together, WE CAN make an impact on local healthcare.
