Bold 50/50 draw with a maximum value of $240,000

PORT MOODY, BC, June 28, 2022 — After a Covid-induced two-year hiatus, Rotary Club of Port Moody’s premier event – Ribfest – is returning over the weekend of July 15-17, 2022. Ribfest attracts 50,000 people from around the Lower Mainland and requires the assistance of the three other Rotary Clubs of the TriCities (Coquitlam, Coquitlam Sunrise and Port Coquitlam). This year the four clubs have come together to create a colossal 50/50 draw that aims to raise $240,000.

One single winner will walk away with half of the jackpot while the other half will be shared between the four Rotary Clubs.

Tickets have been on sale since February and start from just $20 with the best value being 3 for $50 or 8 for $100. There are a limited number of each ticket pack.

There is less than one month left as the deadline to order your tickets is at the close of Ribfest (9 p.m. on Sunday, July 17). The draw will take place at 1 p.m. on Sunday July 24 and the winner will be notified by phone.

Imagine finding out you’re $120,000 richer this July. That would make this the best summer ever!

Rotary puts community first

The mission of Rotary is to make lasting change, both in their own communities as well as globally. With a network of 1.4 million Rotarians worldwide, their impact has been substantial. Their flagship initiative has been leading the charge to eradicate the world of polio by advocacy and by contributing over $2 billion dollars to the cause since 1979.

Each Rotary Club takes on local community-based projects as well as international initiatives. Closer to home, the four TriCity Clubs have worked tirelessly in their communities to give grants to charities, food banks, sports teams and outreach programs. They help send kids to camp, give scholarships, support their Legions and environmental projects to enhance their communities.

With over 700 Rotary Clubs in Canada, Rotarians have made an impact in most communities across our country.

1-4-3

“They were so friendly that I cannot forget their service in my life at all…  Me, my wife and my daughter, we chat every day about them. And I do remember all of their names.” —Kulwant Samra in reference to his health care team at Royal Columbian Hospital.

Struggling for breath as he battled COVID-19, Mr. Samra called 911 before stumbling to the ground as the ambulance arrived. He requested oxygen, and then the next thing he remembers is waking up in the ICU eight weeks later.

Kulwant was able to connect with his daughter by video call after coming back to consciousness. Unable to speak due to the tubes in his mouth, he wrote on paper. 1-4-3. Code for “I love you”. 

“She couldn’t understand what the 1-4-3 meant” he laughs. 

Such was the excellent care of his medical team, the nurses in particular, that Mr. Samra has developed a special affinity for those who helped him when he needed it most. 

Kulwant was able to leave Royal Columbian and return home straight from the ICU two weeks after his first memory of the ICU. Dr. Steve Reynolds, Royal Columbian Hospital critical care physician, had looked after him while he was on life support and was so happy to see him doing much better, sitting up and waving and waiting to head back to his family.
