  Here’s how the lottery works.

The lottery starts with 52 playing cards individually sealed in manila envelopes numbered 1 through 52 and secured in a display case. Nobody knows which envelope contains the Ace of Spades – until the lucky winner catches it!

When tickets are purchased supporters will be asked to pre-select an envelope number on their ticket stub.  The lucky weekly winner takes home 20% of that week’s ticket revenues and the envelope number selected on the ticket will be opened to reveal a playing card. If the card is not the Ace of Spades, the card will be destroyed and the lottery continues for another week.  If the card is the Ace of Spades, the weekly winner also win the progressive jackpot!  The progressive jackpot grows each week with 30% of weekly ticket sales revenue being added in.

There’s no doubt that 2020 has transformed every aspect of our daily lives. Covid-19 has disrupted the way we gather, the way we interact and even the way we play. While it was a difficult decision, the Friends of St. Francis Golf Tournament Committee has decided to cancel the popular tournament for 2020. This decision was made to ensure the safety of the volunteers, the players and the entire community.

Cancellations like these make a huge impact on local healthcare. You may not know that the government simply does not fund equipment purchases and upgrades, and we rely heavily on our generous community for support in this area. Despite the tournament’s cancellation, the St. Francis Valley Healthcare Foundation wants to ensure that the St. Francis Memorial Hospital continues to have the vital equipment it needs to thrive even in these trying times. 

The golf tournament may be cancelled, but something new and exciting is coming!

The tournament may be cancelled, but the show must go on! That’s why, for 2020, we are planning a special virtual fundraiser to replace the popular golf event that will take place on Friday, September 4th.  

This year our Friends of St Francis Virtual Charity Event will help support the needs of local healthcare including the purchase of 20 new evacusleds for the HospitalThese sleds are designed to reduce the risk of injury to patients and staff and are used during emergency evacuation situations.  This purchase comes with a hefty price tag of almost $25,000.  That is why we need your help!

We would like to invite you to participate in our first ever Virtual Charity Event Match-It program!  Every dollar you give will be matched by some very generous Match-It sponsors, and you will receive a full tax receipt.

If you decide that support for the Hospital through this virtual event is right for you (and we hope you will!) please click the button above.

Should you have any questions, please contact either Doug Reeves (613-756-7778) or the Foundation Office (613-756-3044 ext. 217).

Check out the following video for some highlights from the day!

Tips for Event Success

  1. Choose an event
  2. Pick a date and time for your event
  3. Get to know the St. Francis Valley Healthcare Foundation. People are more likely to donate when you can clearly articulate why a cause is important and why you need their support. Visit our website to learn more about us.
  4. Form a volunteer event planning committee. If your planning committee has enough members to share tasks and a variety of skills & experience, you will have the right formula for a winning event.
  5. Create a work plan (and budget if necessary – an organized event is a successful event). Be sure to research whether your event will require any special permit, licenses, and/or insurance.
  6. Promote your event
  7. Have a back-up plan. Make sure you have a ‘plan B’, especially if your event is dependent on factors like the weather.

Support from the St. Francis Valley Healthcare Foundation

  • Publicity and promotion via St. Francis Valley Healthcare Foundation’s social media pages including Facebook, our website, & display monitor (see below for more details)
  • Recognition- We are pleased to make arrangements with local newspapers to cover the event and/or if possible be present for cheque presentations.

Donations/Tax Receipt Guidelines

  • Please contact the Foundation if you have any questions regarding tax receipts. 

Publicity and Promotion

  • Eye-catching flyers, tickets, & other promotional materials will help make your event a success. The correct usage of the St. Francis Valley Healthcare Foundation’s name or logo is very important to us. Foundation staff will be available to work with you to approve the use of the name and logo prior to the event or distribution of materials. All promotional materials should make clear, where applicable, that the funds are being raised in support of the St. Francis Valley Healthcare Foundation rather than by the St. Francis Valley Healthcare Foundation.

Thank you for your interest in hosting your own fundraising event on behalf of the St. Francis Valley Healthcare Foundation. Every little bit counts and we appreciate your efforts to help us raise money to support local healthcare in your community.
