Where would you go with $10,000 cash and a $10,000 travel voucher? The Campbell River Hospital Foundation Lottery is back for its third year, and they are encouraging participants to play “Because You Care.” The Campbell River Hospital Foundation is a registered charity dedicated to raising funds for the hospital, which is the first point of referral for emergencies and illness for the 54,000 people living in North Vancouver Island, an area experiencing both growth and an aging population.

For only $40/ ticket, you can help the hospital purchase two pieces of high tech equipment to improve patient care in the Emergency and Maternity Departments. The first is a Transport Incubator for the Maternity Department. According to their website, the Incubator “is attached to a stretcher that will load directly into an ambulance and will provide the warm, safe environment and quick access necessary for optimal neonate care. Caregivers can select temperature, humidity and oxygen concentration of the incubator microenvironment while the Isolette provides continuous data on the temperature of the precious little patient.” The second piece of equipment is a Portable Ultrasound machine. This is used in the Emergency Department to quickly diagnose internal bleeding, trauma, and life-threatening cardiac conditions- providing essential information in an Emergency situation. (source: CRHF website).

As for prizes… Their grand prize will be $10,000 cash plus a $10,000 travel voucher offered through The Travel Place. The second prize is a 7-night all-inclusive trip for two to the Playa Mita Iberostar in Puerta Vallarta, Mexico. The third prize is a return trip for two people to any scheduled WestJet Destination– will it be Barbados, Mexico, Montreal, New York? There are plenty of places to choose from! Visit their website for more details on the prizes.

“Over the years I have heard so many success stories of genuine appreciation for the quality of health care provided by our professionals despite the challenges they face with respect to funding for equipment, premises and other improvements.

For me giving back is part of a satisfying life and making a contribution is the right thing to do. I am grateful for this opportunity and encourage others to play a role!”
Brenda-Lee Paul, CHRP Board Member since 2006
