With weekly prizes of between $400 and $760, and winners like Caleigh Ryckman from Mount Forest who won $565 in the Week 14 draw, Catch the Ace GBHS is steadily growing.
The progressive jackpot now sits at an estimated $11,400 and is expected to grow to over $12,000 this coming week, as tickets are sold. Funds raised will support the purchase of an MRI system at Owen Sound Regional Hospital.
In the Owen Sound Regional Hospital Foundation office, there are now 38 playing cards individually sealed in manila envelopes on display. These envelopes are numbered from 1 through 52, with the exception of the envelopes already opened by the weekly winners. Nobody knows which envelope contains the Ace of Spades – until one lucky weekly winner catches it.
The MRI in the Owen Sound Regional Hospital is used over 11,000 times per year on patients from across Grey and Bruce to diagnose a range of medical conditions. Tests done with the next generation of MRI technology will be faster, quieter, and more comfortable for patients, and will provide physicians with higher quality images to aid in more accurate diagnoses.
