Gratiot Volunteers to Hold Golden Ticket Raffle, Sales Begin Oct. 19

The MidMichigan Medical Center – Gratiot volunteers are adopting new ways to continue helping its patients and community during the COVID-19 pandemic. This year they are introducing the Golden Ticket Raffle, which will offer six $500 cash prizes. Money raised by the Golden Ticket Raffle will help support the purchase of equipment and enhance patient care for the Medical Center in Alma.

Anna Parker-McDonald, volunteer manager, says she is grateful for the work done by all the volunteers, especially during these extraordinary times. “We play a small part that makes an immense difference to so many,” said Parker-McDonald. “Their dedication to supporting patients and their families, in addition to all of the service hours they provide is heartwarming.”

Tickets go on sale Monday, Oct.19, 2020, and will cost $10 each. They are available for purchase from any MidMichigan Medical Center – Gratiot volunteer, as well as through the Highlander Boutique Gift Shop. Due to current visitor restrictions, the Boutique is only open to inpatients and their visitors. The raffle drawing will be held at 1 p.m., Wednesday, Dec. 16, in the Medical Center’s Hospital Entrance lobby. The winning ticket holders will be contacted by information listed on the ticket.

In addition to the raffle, proceeds collected throughout the year from the Highlander Boutique Gift Shop, popcorn and other various sales are donated annually to the MidMichigan Health Foundation and are used exclusively to support MidMichigan Medical Center – Gratiot.
