Northern Health Foundation Raffle winners announced

The time has come to announce the winner of the 2019 Northern Health Foundation Raffle!

Drawn today in the foyer of Northern Hospital, staff, volunteers and visitors gathered in anticipation to find out who will be the winner of a brand new Hyundai Kona.

The Kona has been on display in the Northern Hospital foyer for the last few months, creating a lot of buzz and excitement about who will drive it away – and Christmas came early for one lucky person!

And the major prize winner is….Ivanna P! (Ticket No. 4377)

The other lucky prize winners are:

2nd Prize – Trip for two to Cairns: Nicole C (Ticket No. 0005)

3rd Prize – Samsung Smart TV: Margaret O (Ticket No. 0289)

4th Prize – Mantra Epping Voucher: Hatice R (Ticket No. 0085)

The raffle this year has been incredibly successful, with 1,304 tickets sold, funds raised supporting the purchase of an additional emergency accommodation property for Northern Health patient families who travel long distances to be with their loved ones in hospital.

Northern Health Foundation Director, Yvonne Amos, said, “the support from our major sponsor, Maxxia, who provided the Hyundai Kona as first prize, and our other sponsors, Helloworld, Eziway, Mantra Epping and South Morang Hyundai, provides a wonderful opportunity for us to raise funds. The campaign has been a joint effort by our partners, staff and the northern community who have all come together in support of Northern Health Foundation.”

Thank you to everyone who purchased tickets and contributed, and a special thank you to the dedicated volunteers who spent many hours selling tickets across our sites.
