Holly Witherspoon of Devlin, ON Wins $10,078!

Riverside Foundation for Health Care is excited to announce that the winner of the November Riverside 50/50 electronic raffle is Holly Witherspoon of Devlin, ON with the winning ticket number X-4600053. Witherspoon takes home $10,078, with the same amount going to the Foundation. The draw was made Wednesday, November 30th at 11:00am in the Foundation Office.

 Witherspoon who was at work when she received the winning call, exclaimed ‘this is unbelievable!’ with excitement. She has been supporting the raffle most months since the very first one, and with Christmas coming her win couldn’t have come at a better time. She plans to spoil her grandson on his upcoming first birthday and book a tropical vacation for herself.

 Thanks to revenue from the April-August 2022 ticket purchases, two spacelab monitors have been purchased for Riverside Health Care Facilities. Funds from the September – November 2022 raffle will be put towards an additional spacelab monitor that is set up specifically for pediatrics. Moving forward funds raised will be used to purchase a Cellavision DC-1 for the lab. This software, which identifies white blood cells, will be extremely helpful to the lab staff. Low staff numbers and new technologists that do not have the experience to identify abnormal cells means that identification can take some time. Because of the ability to send pictures to the pathologist to help identify cells, the Cellavision provides more accurate and faster identification which can lead to a faster diagnoses of blood cancers. The Cellavision comes at an estimated cost of $33,000.
