Mary Myers wins, our hospitals win, we all win! 

Mary Myers wins $25,335 in the University Hospitals Kingston Foundation’s (UHKF) June UHKF 50/50 lottery!

Congratulations, Mary Myers! Both Mary and her family are thrilled that she won!

“I think I just kept saying ‘wow, wow, wow’ as family members followed me around the house, trying to find out what had happened,” says Mary. “I just couldn’t believe that I had won! My oldest child is entering their second year at York University and we have other bills to pay, but I haven’t made any solid plans for the winnings yet. I think my excited family have already made more plans for the winnings than I have! I’m thrilled that I won but I obviously did not expect to. I only entered to support UHKF and help the community. I’m so thankful that we have something like this that will hopefully grow and continue to raise vital funds for our local health care.” 

The other $25,335 will support Kingston Health Sciences Centre (KHSC) and Providence Care. Funds from the UHKF 50/50 lottery fundraiser will support much-needed equipment, programs, education, healthcare facilities, and research that benefit the 500,000 people living in Kingston, southeastern Ontario, and beyond.
