Celebrating his 74th birthday the day before, Glen checked his phone to see if any of his ticket numbers matched our newsletter before receiving the "the best phone call in a million years”. Glen wasn’t aware he had the lucky winning numbers and was so excited to receive the phone call from Trust Fund Staff saying he won!
Glen is a consistent contributor of Group Health Centre Trust Fund initiatives and makes it a priority to support local and provincial health care organizations. He mentioned that he doesn't like to play the lottery but instead support the efforts of the local charitable and non-profit groups in the community, as the odds of winning are better! He tends to buy his tickets a few times a month to enhance his chances of winning.
With just one item on his shopping list, Glen is looking to purchase a new Kitchen Aid mixer to accompany his new food processor, purchased on his birthday.
Congratulations Glen! Thank you for supporting the last Group Health Centre Trust Fund Big Wish Monthly 50/50 Draw for 2021.
Winner - October 15th, 2021
Daniel Belair is the luckiest person on the planet!
You may recognize Daniel as the winner of last year's Big Wish Mega 50/50 $100,000 jackpot!
"Supporting the Group Health Centre has definitely paid off" chuckled Daniel when he received the phone call by Trust Fund staff letting him know he won the October draw.
Daniel has been a member of Group Health Centre since the early 1990s and has been supporting the Trust Fund Big Wish initiatives ever since.
With his previous win, Daniel purchased his dream car - a '65 Mustang! When asked if he has any plans for this jackpot, he chuckled again and said "Oh don't worry, I'm sure my wife will take care of it"
Thank you Daniel for your continued support and good luck on the next draw!

Corey’s connection to Group Health Centre goes back generations on both sides of his family
Congratulations to Corey Caple -- our September Big Wish Monthly 50/50 Winner!
Having lived in various parts of the country, Corey is well aware of the unique structure of GHC. “I’ve worked in the military and for government agencies in both the public and private sector and lived in many different places. I can say for certain there is nowhere out there that provides health care services in quite the same way as Group Health Centre,” Corey remarked “My parents and I wholeheartedly believe in supporting local especially when it comes to fundraising activities. I know my money will be staying in the community and that’s very important to me,” he added.
When asked if there was anything he would like to share about his experience, Corey proudly stated “This is proof that you can help your community and be a winner. This couldn’t have come at a better time, and I will continue to give back whenever I can,” he concluded.
Thank you to Corey and his parents for supporting the Group Health Centre Trust Fund fundraising activities!
HIS FRIENDS CALL HIM RONNIE - AROUND HERE WE JUST CALL HIM 'WINNER".

Ron is a consistent contributor of Group Health Centre Trust Fund initiatives and makes it a priority to support local and provincial health care organizations. He mentioned that he doesn't like to play the lottery but instead support the efforts of the local charitable and non-profit groups in the community.

When Big Wishes Strike Twice
Our July Big Wish Monthly 50/50 Draw Winner is Sergio Saccucci!
Sergio wasn’t expecting to win this draw, it isn’t even his first win with the Trust Fund – he also won an early bird draw in the Big Wish Mega 50/50 back in November of 2020! “I don’t play every month, but I bought these most recent tickets the morning of the draw when I settled in with my coffee to check my emails,” he recalled. Sergio bought tickets because he likes to support local charitable initiatives as a way to give back. “Group Health Centre takes care of us medically – it’s a great facility and this is a great way to support. It’s a win-win,” he shared.
When asked what he would tell others, Sergio said “It feels fantastic to win. The only way to do that is to purchase a ticket,” he concluded.
Thank you Sergio, for supporting the Group Health Centre Trust Fund's Big Wish Monthly 50/50 and congratulations on your win!
