SWEET, SWEET SIXTEENTH BUH Foundation's $100,000 Lottery!!



Battlefords Union Hospital (BUH) Foundation is pleased to announce the kick-off for the Sixteenth Anniversary $100,000 Cash Lottery on Friday, 20th August, 2010.  Cash prizes for 2010 will total $180,000, which will be awarded between September 22nd and November 3rd.


Pat Gotto, long time supporter of BUH Foundation Inc, and volunteer with the $100,000 Cash Lottery since its inception noted, My late husband Al and I have been involved with this fundraising event for the past 15 years and I am proud to be part of the 16th.  When we first initiated the idea of a Lottery 16 years ago, we were told that The Battlefords and surrounding community could not sustain such a fundraising endeavor.  However we knew that local businesses and individuals are the most excellent supporters of local health care, and delightfully we have been proven right!  This Lottery has sold out the last 12 years  Pat then added, A Lottery is a time-consuming event, and specific standards set by Sask Liquor and Gaming must be adhered to at all times.  I am very proud to say that this is one of the very few Lotteries in Saskatchewan that is fully and successfully run by Foundation staff and volunteers, and I am pleased to be involved.


Tickets will remain the same as in previous years at $40.00 each or three for $100.00.  They are available at Bee-J's Office Plus, Battlefords Furniture, BUH Canteen/Gift Shop, and in the main lobby of BUH.  Tickets can also be purchased by calling (306) 446 6652 or toll-free 1-888-946-4284 (1-888-WIN-4BUH).  All winners names will be published in the News-Optimist, announced on CJNB/Q98/The Rock and CJNS radio stations as well as posted on BUH Foundation's website at 


Proceeds from the 2010 $100,000 Cash Lottery have been allocated to the purchase of an ultrasound for Medical Imaging.  Though BUH already performs over 8600 ultrasound exams every year, this new machine will mean that many patients who have had to travel to a medical facility outside of The Battlefords now have the opportunity to have their diagnostic procedures done locally at BUH. We all benefit from quality healthcare and to family and friends this means modern, efficient treatment close to home.
