This new 50/50 draw supports children at Victoria General Hospital


How’d you like to win a large cash prize, and support Victoria hospitals while you’re at it?

With the Victoria Hospitals Foundation’s Pediatrics 50/50 Raffle you could make that a reality—where the cash prize keeps getting bigger and better.

The Victoria Hospitals Foundation is a registered charity that works in partnership with Island Health to enable donations to every area of care at Royal Jubilee, Victoria General, and Gorge Road hospitals.

Raffle tickets are available now, and your ticket purchase has the power to help fund sophisticated technology and new equipment that enables maternity and pediatrics teams at Victoria General Hospital (VGH) to carry out delicate and highly specialized treatments.

You could be the winner of the 50/50 Raffle which means you take home half of the total jackpot, which is currently sitting at over $12,000—tickets start at only $10 and can be purchased online here.

Since 1989, VHF has raised more than $180 million to benefit Victoria hospitals.

Buying your ticket today helps support newborns and children seeking care at Victoria General Hospital—the referral hospital for pediatric and maternity care on Vancouver Island.

VGH is is staffed with talented caregivers—experts in perinatal services, maternity care, and general pediatrics, and is also home to one of BC’s four high-level neonatal intensive care (NICU) and one of two pediatric intensive care (PICU) units. Because of this, less than 2% of cases are transferred to the Mainland for care.

  • 50/50 Raffle Ticket Sales End: Monday, June 5th at 11:59 p.m.
