Scotty Morrison was one of the first to buy tickets in the Cash for Care Lottery launch last night. Executive Director of the Haliburton Highlands Health Services Foundation Dale Walker and Campaign co-chair Don Popple kicked off the event at the Minden hospital. Walker said the lottery made 60 thousand dollars in net profit in the first two years. Popple says they’re looking to fundraise about 40 thousand dollars this year to put towards the new palliative centre.

You can buy tickets at the TD Bank, Canadian Tire or Foodland in Minden and the BMO, Independent and Foodland in Haliburton. The final draw is on May 22, but early bird draws are happening in February, March and April.
