CKHA 50/50 reaches record level


The 50/50 draw for the Chatham-Kent Health Alliance Foundation is now the largest 50/50 jackpot in Chatham-Kent’s history.

The previous record of $168,000 was set last September, with the winner getting $89,045. The current total of the CKHAF’s 50/50 draw for the winning ticket is now over $100,000 and climbing, with the draw closing tomorrow at noon.

“We simply cannot believe the overwhelming support from the community,” Mary Lou Crowley, President and CEO of the CKHA Foundation, said in a release. “The current numbers just keep climbing, we are so excited that we will be giving the winner a six-digit cheque now!”

Carson Warrener, VP Sales and Marketing for Maple City Homes who is a presenting sponsor for the draw, said, “This is an amazingly generous community, when C-K is asked to step up they always come through and then some.”

Robb Nelson, CEO of AgriRoots Capital Management Inc., the other presenting sponsor said, “We are extremely proud to have been involved in this initiative from day one. As corporate sponsors we try to support fundraising opportunities that will directly affect the residents of Chatham-Kent. We are so proud of how Chatham-Kent has come together to support this cause, and getting this key piece of equipment for the CKHA healthcare team will save lives.”
