With only days remaining, the Chatham-Kent Health Alliance Foundation is asking local residents to light up its Igniting Health 50-50 FUNdraiser.
The big draw is scheduled for July 13 at 1 p.m., and as of last week it exceeded a total of $100,000. As of Monday at noon, it topped $116,000.
It means some lucky winner will take home a life-changing payout of more than $58,000, as sales are expected to grow in the final days.
Proceeds from the fundraiser will support the purchase of two new pulmonary function test units, one each for the Chatham and Wallaceburg sites.
The MCH family of companies, which includes Maple City Homes, MCH Realty Group, AgriRoots Capital Management Inc. and FamilyLending.ca Inc., has partnered with the Foundation as a sponsor of this fundraiser for the fourth consecutive year.
Ticket sales will continue throughout Chatham-Kent until the draw. They can also be purchased at the Foundation office at 9 Ursuline Ave. in Chatham or online at www.ignite5050.ca.
