Your support could be the key to the next big breakthrough

BC Children’s is the only hospital in the province devoted exclusively to children. As one of the world’s top-ranked pediatric hospitals, it leads the way in confronting many of the most pressing health challenges facing kids today—from cancer to heart disease and brain health.

They have a secret tool in this quest: an on-site Research Institute. Over 1,500 research community members tirelessly work to understand the origins of illnesses, develop groundbreaking treatments and move closer to cures. As 70% of researchers are also health care professionals providing care in the hospital, life-changing discoveries can be brought from the laboratory bench straight to a child’s bedside faster and more efficiently.

Your support plays a pivotal role in accelerating the translation of these discoveries. And beyond propelling this work, your contribution also empowers researchers to dream even bigger. Thank you for shaping the future of children’s health care.

Try your luck in the Winter 50/50 raffle

VANCOUVER, BC, February 16, 2024 — Get your tickets now for St. Paul’s Foundation’s Winter 50/50 raffle. One lucky winner will take home half the jackpot. The other half will go directly towards supporting Providence patients, long-term care residents, and their families with compassionate, comforting care across BC.

Overall, 60% of Canadians aged 19 to 79 have a hearing problem. Hearing loss occurs frequently in older adults making it difficult to communicate, especially in a health care setting. It creates challenges for health care providers, patients, and residents to share personal care plans or needs; to understand and follow medical advice; and to make informed care choices.

Pocket talkers can reduce confusion, fear, and isolation associated with hearing loss

Pocket talkers are hand-held assistive hearing devices that allow communication to take place between health care providers and their patients and residents who are hard of hearing, thereby reducing confusion, fear, and isolation.

Thanks to raffle supporters like you, access to pocket talkers are available to patients, residents, and staff throughout Providence, including long-term care homes and acute care settings.

Another humble hallmark of the compassionate care offered to patients and residents throughout Providence.

Each ticket is so much more than a chance to win

Tickets are available for purchase until February 29, 2024 at 10:00 PM PST. The winning number will be drawn on March 4 at 12PM (noon) and will be posted on the Winter 50/50 raffle website.

Ticket bundles are available to increase your chances of winning:

  • 3 for $10
  • 20 for $25
  • 120 for $50 (the best value for your chance to win)

Remember the more tickets you buy, the more chances you have to win!
