HHHS Foundation is excited to announce a new monthly online 50/50 lottery draw, with 50 per cent of the funds raised going to a monthly winner, and 50 per cent to support local hospital and health care facility equipment needs.

After buying their tickets, purchasers will receive a confirmation emailed with their 50/50 registered numbers from a random selection system. The amount of the 50/50 estimated take-home prize for the month will be displayed in real time on the site and will continue to grow as more people participate.
