Win BIG with St. Paul’s Foundation’s Spring 50/50 raffle.

VANCOUVER, BC, May 9, 2024 — Try your luck in St. Paul’s Foundation’s Spring 50/50 raffle. One lucky winner will take home half the jackpot, while the other half will go directly toward supporting patients, long-term care residents, and their families with compassionate, comforting care – today, and for years to come.

Over $357,000 in cash prizes have been awarded to date across BC!

Music therapy programs bring so much happiness to patients and residents

Soundbeam is an instrument that uses motion sensors to detect movements and turn them into music. Lucy Thomas, a music therapist at St. Vincent’s Langara, uses Soundbeam to help long-term care residents find joy even if they have limited mobility or vocal abilities.

Residents can make music with just a wave of a hand or a wiggle of a toe. Some residents have illnesses or conditions that make movement difficult, so this adaptive technology has a truly positive impact on their quality of life. It gives them the opportunity to create and enjoy beautiful music regardless of their ability or skill level.

Your raffle purchase will support many wonderful music initiatives across Providence’s network of hospitals and residences, including access to musical instruments and musical programming. 

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

Help share the joy of music! Buy your tickets today.

Tickets are available for purchase until May 31. The winner will be drawn on June 4. Ticket bundles are available to increase your chances of winning!

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

Get your tickets on the 50/50 raffle website.
