Winnipeg Humane Society (WHS) and Misericordia Health Centre Foundation (MHCF) are excited to announce their partnership on a joint lottery! This is a ground-breaking endeavour in the Winnipeg non-profit community: two organizations with unique missions partnering to gain support for compassionate care and companionship! Two great causes, one great lottery!

Introducing the 50/50 Lottery with a Bonus Prize Package and The Great Cash Calendar add-on!

The 50/50 Lottery starts with a guaranteed jackpot of $20,000 that will continue to grow with each ticket package purchased. The grand prize winner will walk away with 50 per cent of the jackpot PLUS the choice of a $123,000 valued Bonus Prize which includes a Mercedes-Benz GCL300 and a $50,000 Transcona Trailer Gift Certificate to select a new ATV, RV or snowmobile, OR take an additional $100,000 cash!

“We are so excited and honoured to join in this historic partnership with Winnipeg Humane Society! Our two great causes joining forces to launch One Great Lottery will ensure we raise awareness and much-needed funds to support both of our critical missions. This lottery will provide important support to MHC, as it provides specialized care to tens of thousands of Manitobans annually,” Kris Gladwell, President & CEO, Misericordia Health Centre Foundation.

“Launching this size of lottery is a dream come true for an organization like ours. Winnipeg Humane Society depends on donations and events to raise our almost $10M annual operating budget; with in-person events on the fritz, this lottery gives us the opportunity to help over 10,000 animals a year with its potential proceeds – we are so grateful for our partnership with Misericordia Health Centre Foundation,” Jessica Miller, CEO, Winnipeg Humane Society.

 Winnipeg Humane Society is a registered charity and non-profit organization whose mission is to protect animals from suffering and to promote their welfare and dignity. Funded primarily by donations, events, and bequests, the WHS has pets for adoption and offers numerous programs and services that promote the humane treatment of animals, including farm animal advocacy efforts, pet first aid, and education programs for children, adults, and pets.

Misericordia Health Centre Foundation is proud to support Misericordia Health Centre (MHC) as it plays a vital role in meeting the evolving health-care needs of Manitobans. Today, Misericordia represents the future of care as a centre for multiple programs and medical disciplines. It is home to one of the country’s leading eye care centres, is an important campus of long-term care, and hosts Health Links – Info Santé. It also offers the provincial sleep disorder treatment centre and various diagnostic programs. MHC continues to be a model for compassionate care, just as it was when it was founded by the Misericordia Sisters in 1898.
