Donna Nickerson purchases the first ticket in the 2019 Intercity Shopping Centre 50/50 Cash Draw from Shannon Young, Marketing Director, Intercity Shopping Centre. This year's Cash Draw features a jackpot of up to $25,000 and tickets are on sale now.

 

Thunder Bay, ON – It’s back again for its 19th year! Thunder Bay’s most popular 50/50 Cash Draw launched this afternoon at Intercity Shopping Centre. In the past 18 years, this event has raised $197,072 to advance health care at our Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre. 100% of the funds remain in Northwestern Ontario to support world-class patient and family centred care for the people of our community. This year, one lucky winner will take home up to $25,000 in cash, just in time for Christmas.

“Intercity is once again thrilled to partner with the Health Sciences Foundation and provide one lucky shopper with an amazing gift just before the holidays,” said Stacey Ball, General Manager, Intercity Shopping Centre. “Beyond that, our partnership over the years has continued to provide services, equipment, and resources to bring health care to our city and region to the next level. Without your health you have nothing, and healthy shoppers make great shoppers.”

From November 1 until December 21 (or until tickets are sold out, whichever comes sooner) tickets will be available at Intercity Shopping Centre and the Donation Centre (next to Robin’s Donuts inside the Health Sciences Centre). Tickets are $5 each or 3 for $10 and may not be purchased by, or on behalf of persons under the age of 18. Last year tickets sold out so organizers are encouraging people to buy tickets right away.

Proceeds from this year’s draw will continue to support the Northern Cardiac Fund as we continue to enhance our cardiovascular care program in preparation for a full cardiovascular surgery program in Thunder Bay. This year’s Intercity Shopping Centre 50/50 Cash Draw will be held on Friday, December 21, 2018 at 2:00 p.m. at Intercity Shopping Centre. Ticket holders do not have to be present to win.
