The 2nd and 3rd prizes winners are Mr. Benoit Bernard of Dalhousie and Ms. Hélène Massé from Campbellton. They both won a SHEA WEBER autographed jersey. Congratulations to all winners!

This fundraising event enabled the Friends of Healthcare Foundation to raise $12,320! This amount will contribute to purchase medical equipment for health facilities and programs right here in the Restigouche, namely the Campbellton Regional Hospital, the Restigouche Hospital Centre, the St. Joseph Community Health Centre, the Jacket River Health Centre, the E.L. Murray Medical Clinic, the Community Mental Health Centre, Public Health and Region Addiction Services.

“I would like to thank all those who entered the draw as well as those who sold tickets, as 1,631 tickets were sold! It’s a record year! Because it was such a success, we added a second #6 Shea Weber jersey as a 3rd prize” said Mr. Jean-Luc Landry, Executive Director of the Friends of Healthcare Foundation. “I would also like to thank our sponsors, Molson Coors Canada, Restigouche Drive-Thru, Via Rail Canada and VC Renovations DKI for having made this draw possible. I invite you to participate again next year in this annual event.”
