North Battleford, SK - February 19, 2010  Volunteers will be once again selling Battlefords Union Hospital (BUH) Foundation Monthly Cash Lottery tickets starting Monday, February 22nd at BUH Main Lobby.


The Lottery will remain with the same format that has been successful for the Foundation:  tickets will remain at $104.00 each, with only 1200 being sold.   There will be a total of 158 draws, awarding $50,000.00 in cash prizes over a period of 12 months.


The Monthly Lottery is expected to raise about $40,000.00, and these proceeds have been allocated towards the purchase of medical equipment for BUH's Respiratory Therapy Unit.  If you or someone you care for has experienced difficulties in breathing, you know the importance that respiratory therapy provides to critically compromised patients suffering chronic lung problems.  The treatment of debilitating respiratory diseases requires specialized equipment to effectively manage critically ill patients.

Following these two preliminary draws, monthly draws will take place on the last Wednesday of every month, beginning April 28th, with the exception of December, which will be drawn on the 15th.   Thirteen prizes totaling $4,000.00 will be awarded every month, including the top prize of $1,000.00, second prize of $600.00, third prize of $400.00 and ten additional prizes of $200.00 each.


The Board of Directors and staff of BUH Foundation are grateful and thankful for all the past support shown for the Monthly Cash Lottery, and wish all ticket purchasers of the 2010 Monthly Cash Lottery the Best of Luck!
