I have been a seasonal resident in the Lindsay area all of my life. As a senior citizen, one of the key reasons we continue to reside in the area is because we have such a great hospital nearby. When I read about the Split the Pot Lottery in Kawartha Now, I thought it was another great opportunity to support the hospital,” says Bill B., who won the largest grand prize and supported Ross Memorial Hospital Foundation.

Winners were drawn on Friday, March 22 and revealed to the public on Monday, March 25 on the Split the Pot Lottery website.

Split the Pot Lottery supports hospital health care, with 51 hospital partners across the province including Ross Memorial, and ticket buyers can share the winnings and be part of the largest partnered fundraising initiative in Ontario. By participating in Split the Pot, supporters are also shifting the dialogue around Ontario’s hospitals, highlighting that we are all connected and that a win for one is a win for all.
