Buy a raffle ticket to help heart transplant research

The Heart Transplant Patients group, HeartLinks, will be selling raffle tickets in the Eaton lobby of the Toronto General Hospital between the hours of 10am and 3pm on January 19th and 26th, February 2nd, 9th and 14th (the draw will take place at 1:30pm on the 14th). All proceeds will go to Heart Transplant medical research and related projects.

The heart group has always been very supportive of our lung transplant initiatives and I encourage you to support this worthwhile cause of theirs. They have worked very hard to get some great prizes and sponsorship (more than 30 at last count) which include hotel stays, tv sets, cameras, Raptors and Maple Leafs tickets, gift certificates for retail stores and restaurants, plus much more. A full list is posted throughout the hospital.

The draw will take place in the Eaton Lobby, Toronto General Hospital, Valentine’s Day, February 14th at 1:30pm.

Tickets are $2 each, 3 for $5 or a booklet of 20 for $30. They can be purchased directly from the Transplant Clinic on the 12th floor, NCSB. You can also get tickets by phone or email: 416-351-0793 or Raffle Tickets

If you would like to help sell tickets your support will be appreciated. Let the organizers know ASAP at the above contacts.
