Your Decision CAN Make a Difference!
Saskatoon, March 1, 2013 - In the overall scheme of things deciding whether or not to purchase a raffle ticket may not seem like a very important decision but it really is! Especially for the hundreds of thousands of people in our province that are affected by lung disease. On a daily basis they rely on The Lung Association of Saskatchewan and the education, programs, support groups, and cutting-edge research that we provide or facilitate.
Tickets officially go on sale today for the 2013 Share The Air Raffle (Lottery License #LR12-0084). Purchasing your tickets will not only help people to breathe easier but will also give you a chance to win the grand prize of up to $121,750 in tax-free cash! Win the second prize and attend a hot air balloon festival in Switzerland. If you have a different vacation spot in mind, choose your own destination or take a $10,000 cash pay-out instead. 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.
