Win a Prize – Change a Life!
Saskatoon, March 1, 2012 - Tickets officially go on sale today for the 2012 Share The Air Raffle (Lottery License #LR11-0070). The Lung Association of Saskatchewan, in conjunction with their corporate partner, SaskEnergy, invites your support by purchasing your chance to win. You could have an exciting summer if your name is drawn for the grand prize of up to $120,000 in tax-free cash!
A chance to win up to $120,000 is reason enough to purchase your tickets. But remember that your support will also change the lives of people that are affected by lung disease. Imagine having your breath taken away by simple things like dressing in the morning or carrying a bag of groceries. That is the challenge that many people with COPD face each and every day. But with exercise programs and Lung Association funded education programs, people living with this chronic condition can regain a quality of life they thought they had lost forever. In Saskatchewan, over 60,000 people have COPD. That is just one example of how you, as a supporter of the raffle, can change lives.
As the second prize winner, think about where you would travel if you won the $11,000 Dream Vacation! Or take the $10,000 cash pay-out to make one of your other dreams come true. Win a SaskEnergy Network Member gift certificate ($3,500, $1,500, or $1,000) redeemable for the purchase of natural gas equipment and/or services at any SaskEnergy Network Member location in Saskatchewan. But you can’t win any of these fabulous prizes unless you purchase your tickets! They are still one for $35, two for $60, or (the best deal) four for $100.
