Niagara Health Foundation is pleased to announce the winner of the most recent Niagara Health 50/50 Lottery powered by Desjardins. The lucky ticket number NH-7885568 and winner of $62,740 is Niagara Falls resident and Welland Hospital Charge Nurse, Eleonora Cook.
The Niagara Health Foundation has awarded $490,645 in cash prizes through the Niagara Health 50/50 Lottery since the program began in the spring of 2020.
The Foundation called Eleonora to tell her the exciting news. “Are you serious? Are you serious?” were the first words from Eleonora. “Oh my god, I won? I won? I have to call my husband; I have to call my husband!”
The Foundation met with Eleonora outside the St. Catharines Site of Niagara Health this week to deliver the cheque. When she was asked what she would do with the funds, she told us, “We are going to start some much-needed renovations,” she laughed. “I am so grateful; thank you so much. I have worked at Niagara Health since 1989, and I am so grateful.”
Eleonora’s win comes in the Foundation’s fifth Niagara Health 50/50 Lottery. During the February 14th to March 11th draw, the Foundation awarded ten (10) daily prizes of $500 and five (5) $1,000 Early Bird Prizes sponsored by Desjardins.
“The Foundation is so grateful for the support our Lottery program has received. We have given away nearly $500,000 to our winners, and we have been able to help Niagara Health purchase urgently needed equipment and provide vital local healthcare for the 450,000 residents of Niagara. This program truly is a win-win for the Niagara community,” said Andrea Scott, President & CEO of Niagara Health Foundation.
