The Split The Pot Grand Prize Winner Supports Ross Memorial Hospital

KAWARTHA LAKES-Congratulations to Bill B. of Toronto, winner of the Split the Pot Lottery grand prize of $646,749!

Officials say Bill and his wife, Debbie, are cottagers in Kawartha Lakes. When he bought tickets for the multi-hospital lottery, Bill chose the Ross Memorial Hospital Foundation as his charity partner.

“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.”

 “We were thrilled to hear that the lucky winner of the Split the Pot grand prize chose the Ross Memorial Hospital Foundation as his hospital charity partner,” said Erin Coons, RMH Foundation CEO. “We couldn’t be happier for Bill and his family. This is truly a life-changing win! We’re very fortunate to have a vibrant cottage community in Kawartha Lakes – people who consider the Ross to be their hospital, too. We can all ensure our hospital is equipped to care during times of need.”

 The RMH Foundation says it is grateful to everyone who bought tickets for the Split the Pot hospital lottery and selected the Ross. This lottery is yet another way people can help fund medical equipment and critical hospital needs that are not covered by government funding.

The RMH Foundation is one of 51 Ontario hospital foundations participating in the Split the Pot lottery, which is a spin on a traditional 50/50, with 50% of ticket sales (100% of the jackpot) distributed to 13 grand prize winners, and the remaining 50% of ticket sales directly supporting participating hospitals.

The Ross benefits when people choose the RMH Foundation when purchasing their tickets, or when they choose ‘All Hospitals’. This online lottery is operated by Ascend Fundraising Solutions and hosted (licensed) by the Grand River Hospital Foundation.
