This past August long weekend, Scarborough residents came out in droves with full appetites for the annual Scarborough Rib Fest at Thomson Memorial Park – and thanks to the Rotary Club of Scarborough, both SHN Foundation and one lucky attendee when home with much more!
The Club’s annual 50/50 raffle, which supports lifesaving health care at Scarborough Health Network’s hospitals and satellite sites, saw an incredible level of participation in the weeks leading up to the Rib Fest, as well as at the event itself. Over the past month, along with members of the SHN Foundation team, the Rotary Club promoted the raffle and sold tickets to patients, staff, physicians, volunteers and community members within the hospitals, while a booth as also set up at the Rib Fest itself.
This year, the total jackpot from the 50/50 raffle reached an incredible $29,120, with Deidre Balyk being selected as the lucky winner, taking home $14,560 (the same amount was also donated back to Scarborough Health Network).
The Foundation thanks the Rotary Club of Scarborough and others in the community for the continued support, which is helping us continue to shape the future of care in Scarborough.
