Hospital Foundation Tees Up the Drive for a Million

4/12/2007 12:00:00 AM

Whether a golfer or not, everyone can help support Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital Foundation by buying a ten dollar ticket in the Drive for a Million raffle announced today. 


The new raffle will support the tenth annual Hawk Ridge Hospital Classic. This golf tournament is always the biggest annual fundraiser for Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital. The goal is to push total proceeds from those ten years over the $1 million mark. To do so, this year’s Classic must raise $150,000.


“The Classic is so successful, it now sells out every year,” says Volunteer Chair Bill Fillmore.  “We wanted to find a way that everyone in the community, whether or not they are golfing with us, could support this Drive for a Million. The raffle was a perfect idea.”


McLean and Dickey Insurance and Financial Services is the presenting sponsor of the raffle. “We are thrilled to be able to help the hospital in this way,” says Principal VP Danielle Tisi. “All proceeds will support the new MRI which is a needed addition to health care in our region. We hope everyone will buy a ticket, or two, or three, to do their part to help.”


Grand prize in the raffle is a Mediterranean cruise valued at $10,000. Other prizes include a diamond tennis bracelet, 50 inch plasma TV, Weber BBQ and Montreal Canadiens hockey weekend.


Tickets are $10 each or 3 for $25. They are available for sale at Mclean and Dickey at 390 Laclie Street, at the Hospital Foundation at 150 Mississaga St. W. and in other locations around Orillia and area.


Raffle tickets will be sold over the next two months, with the winners drawn on June 6th.


Sponsorship and golf spots for the Hawk Ridge Hospital Classic are also available by calling Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital Foundation at 325-6464.
