Businesses are adding their own spin on the MICS Health Care Foundation’s online 50-50 draw.
Foundation coordinator Katie Brown says for the past couple of months, Cochrane businesses have donated early bird prizes.
In June, it was a chain saw package from Girard Esso. For July, it’s a Solo stove from Brisson Castle Building and Living Centre.
Browne says an early bird winner has their ticket put back in for the big monthly draw.
“If you get your tickets by the first deadline with the early bird draw, you have the chance to win each early bird prize,” she explains, “and, of course, the guaranteed grand prize of $5,000, which doesn’t typically stay at $5,000.”
Browne says any business can contact her about doing donating prizes.
“I’d love the opportunity to discuss how we can collaborate with local businesses and the MICS Foundation and come together to help support our health care.”
The foundation’s mandate is raising money for hospital equipment in Matheson, Iroquois Falls and Cochrane; and for the redevelopment of South Centennial Manor in Iroquois Falls.
