Last week to get your Foundation Raffle tickets!

This week is the final week to purchase your tickets for the Northern Health Foundation Raffle! Tickets are selling fast, click here to get yours today!

Four prizes are up for grabs this year – the major prize being a brand new Hyundai Kona valued at almost $30,000. The stylish Kona has been on display in the Northern Hospital foyer, with visitors and staff stopping to check it out!

Other raffle prizes include:

  • 2nd prize – Trip for two to Cairns including five nights accommodation, breakfast and airfares (RRP $3,000.00)
  • 3rd prize – Samsung 50″ Smart LED Television (RRP: $1,095.00)
  • 4th prize – Mantra Epping Voucher including one night accommodation, two course dinner and full buffet breakfast for two people (RRP: $500.00)

Last year’s raffle winner, Northern Health staff member Anne Gravette, bought her ticket with the intention of supporting her health service, not even considering she may be the lucky winner.

“I didn’t buy a ticket thinking I would win, as I never win anything! I bought the ticket because I wanted to support the work of the Foundation in improving services for my community,” she said.

Each year, the Foundation Raffle funds a very important cause that supports patient care at Northern Health. This year, proceeds will go towards the purchase of an emergency accommodation property for patient families who travel long distances to be with their loved ones receiving care at Northern Hospital Epping.

The accommodation will lessen the burden on families who travel from rural or regional Victoria and provide relief during what can be a stressful time.

Tickets can be purchased up until midnight on Friday 13 December, with the raffle being drawn Monday 16 December at 2 pm in the foyer of Northern Hospital. Be sure to head down there and you might see your name drawn!
