The skies are open to Campbell River Hospital Foundation Lottery winners

Bon voyage to the lucky winners of a lottery organized by the Campbell River Hospital Foundation!

Fortune was smiling on grand prize winner Wendy Devlin, who took home a $10,000 travel voucher and the same amount in cash, second-place winner Eileen Temple, who received $2,500 in cash and return tickets for two to any WestJet destination, and third-place winner Kevin Wong, whose prize was $1,000 and a week-long stay at a resort on the Yucatán Peninsula in Mexico.

The grand prize and second-place winners are both Campbell River residents, while the third prize went to an entrant from Port Coquitlam. Some 2,700 people entered this year’s draw, which was open to participants across B.C.

The raffle, known as the “Because You Care Hospital Lottery,” helps raise funds for medical gear and training for health-care workers. Proceeds from this year’s lottery are meant to bolster women’s health through the purchase of a specialized tissue removal system, according to the foundation’s website.
