After a successful pilot campaign last fall, Split The Pot Lottery is back in support of hospitals across Ontario.
The collaborative fundraiser runs from Feb. 8 to March 21, and the Georgetown Hospital Foundation is among those benefiting from the effort.
This lottery supports an additional 30 hospital partners and offers players 13 more chances to win early bird prizes, with a guaranteed minimum $500,000 jackpot.
“As lead sponsor of the Split the Pot Lottery initiative, we're very excited to see so many hospital foundations come together. The initial lottery exceeded expectations, and we can't wait to see the impacts of Split the Pot on our local health care," said Paul McIntyre Royston, president and CEO of the Grand River Hospital Foundation.
"By participating in Split the Pot, you help to ensure care never stops in our communities and that patients receive access to the technology and services they need to have the best possible outcomes."
To give players more chances to win, the Split the Pot Lottery jackpot will be divided among 13 grand prize winners, and there will be 26 chances to win a total of $76,000 in early bird prizes. A portion of proceeds from every ticket purchased goes directly to support partnering hospitals through their foundations.
Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased at splitthepot.ca. Tickets purchased before midnight Feb. 15 will be eligible for all 26 early bird prizes, plus the grand prize draws.
