ALMONTE – Catch the ace and win some cash in Almonte, all while supporting the Almonte General Hospital Fairview Manor Foundation.
The “wildly popular” Catch the Ace progressive lottery has come to Almonte and the surrounding region thanks to a new partnership between the Almonte Legion, Branch 240, and the Almonte General Hospital Fairview Manor Foundation.
Tickets, which went on sale yesterday (Jan. 5), are only available online at: www.catchtheacealmonte.ca
“Now more than ever, the Hospital, Manor and Legion need our support,” said Legion Lottery coordinator Brenda Logan, who, along with past president Dave Cormier, pulled the new fundraiser together with foundation staff. “Being online during the pandemic means more people can participate safely.”
Tickets are three for $10, 10 for $20, or 50 for $50. Draws will be held each Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. beginning Jan. 12. The holder of the weekly winning number will take home the weekly prize plus is eligible to win the progressive jackpot if the envelope they chose contains the illusive Ace of Spades. If the Ace isn’t caught, the weekly pot is reset, and the lottery starts all over again with the jackpot progressively growing larger. Tickets must be purchased on a weekly basis to be eligible to win.
Net proceeds from Catch the Ace Almonte will be shared equally by the Legion, the hospital and the manor foundation supporting Legion programs and services and funding new clinical equipment at the hospital and manor.
