Wetaskiwin Hospital and Care Centre Staff donate $20,000 through 50/50 Draw

WHF receives profits of staff 50/50 draw towards new CT scanner.

The Staff of the Wetaskiwin Hospital and Care Centre along with public and mental health made a healthy donation to the New CT Scanner.

On Thursday, April 30th, the donation from the proceeds of the staff 50/50 draw were presented to the Wetaskiwin Health Foundation to assist in the new CT scanner campaign that started a month ago. Retired executive Director Lillian Dykes spearheaded the draw in March of 2014. The first year has been a great success with the annual total being $20,000.

The Staff have been very supportive and excited about an opportunity to help the foundation.   The initial draw in March of 2014 had 263 staff donating the one on April 30, 2015 had 371 staff donating. The draw continues to grow and is expected to donate at least another $20,000 before the Ct Scanner campaign wraps up in August of 2016.
