Guelph hospital foundation holding 50/50 lottery

GUELPH – The Guelph General Hospital Foundation is holding a 50/50 lottery and sales are already exceeding expectations.

On Saturday July 11, ticket sales surpassed this threshold and the prize pot has been growing steadily since.

It now sits over $15,000 and is still growing.

The Foundation has future plans to offer in-person ticket sales at the Hospital and other select locations. However, at this time due to COVID-19, tickets can only be purchased online at
