Thursday, Dec. 7 was a much awaited day for the Dr. Helmcken Memorial Hospital Auxiliary as members had their annual Christmas lunch at the Gateway Grill.
Lunch was excellent but the main topic of conversation was, “Who’s going to win the 50/50?”
The draw was finally made by Don Goddard, a guest from Kamloops. The winning ticket belonged to Brandon Miner.
Brandon works at Buy-Low, so those available headed over to tell him in person. To say he was surprised was an understatement! He was presented with his $5,000 cheque by Sue Ludtke, who alone had sold 50 books of tickets.
The Auxiliary would like to thank the whole community for the ongoing support. It’s been great!
The members appreciate Buy-Low for allowing them to set up ticket sales inside the store.
Dr. Helmcken Memorial Hospital also benefits from the raffle as it allows the Auxiliary to purchase more equipment for the hospital.
The group’s next big fundraiser will be its Garden Party. This will be on May 6, 2018. See you there.
Once again, thank you and Merry Christmas everyone!
