The Brandon Regional Health Centre Foundation has launched a major fundraising campaign – Pumps for Life. The goal is to raise $900,000 to replace all the infusion pumps at BRHC.
Every department uses these pumps, and they have reached their life expectancy. These pumps help healthcare staff safely administer intravenous fluids, whether IV medications, blood transfusions, chemotherapy drugs, or fluid replacement.
To reach this goal of $900,000, the Foundation is running a Chase the Ace raffle.
Tickets are on sale for 3 for $10, 10 for $20 or 50 for $50 and are available online. Weekly winners will receive 20% of the weekly gross ticket sales.
When you are purchasing your tickets, you will get to choose an envelope that will be opened should you have the winning ticket. 30% of the gross weekly ticket sales are in the Chase the Ace jackpot, and if your envelope is opened and reveals the Ace of Spades, you will win this prize as well. If the Ace of Spades is not found, this jackpot will carry over until the next week and keeps accumulating until the Ace is revealed.
Draws take place every Thursday at 3 pm. The winner will be announced on the BRHC Foundation Chase the Ace website and the BRHC Foundation Facebook and Instagram accounts.
To make a donation toward this campaign, please visit the foundation website or contact our office at 204- 578-4226. Donations over $15 will be issued a tax receipt. Donations over $1,000 will receive recognition on the campaign donor wall.
