The Penticton Vees and the South Okanagan Similkameen (SOS) Medical Foundation have teamed up to raise funds for a new CT scan machine at the Penticton Regional Hospital (PRH).
The SOS Medical Foundation will be selling raffle tickets at the South Okanagan Events Centre during each of the Vees’ first two playoff games.
The playoffs commence on Feb. 27 followed by game two on Feb. 28 against the West Kelowna Warriors.
Each raffle ticket purchased will have a chance to win the grand prize of $1,000 cash, the second place prize of a pair of season tickets for the Vees 2020-21 season, and the third place prize of a Vees team signed jersey. The $1,000 cash prize has been provided by Cascades Casino.
The funds raised by the raffle will benefit the PRH.
The CT scan machine is set to be included in renovations to the PRH emergency department, projected to be completed by late 2021.
