2 Cars 2 Winners Raffle Comes to a Close!
MONROE, La. (KNOE) - Congrats to Jennifer Bridges from Oak Grove who won a 2022 Toyota 4Runner SR5 and Chad Beasinger of West Monroe who won a 2022 Nissan Titan Pro-4X.
It’s part of the St. Francis Foundation’s 2 Cars 2 Winners Raffle, where if you bought a ticket you were entered for a chance to win a brand new car. This year, they raised about $350,000 through ticket sales and sponsorships.
“2 cars 2 Winners was particularly near and dear to our hearts because we didn’t realize how many of our members and how many of our employees utilized the NICU services at St. Francis and had an amazing experience, so this was just a great way for us to give back to the community,” says Gary Funderburk with Ouachita Valley Federal Credit Union.
Proceeds from the raffle go toward Women’s, Children’s, and Critical Care Services at St. Francis Medical Center. This year, they want to use the money for a big remodel of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). They hope to start construction on the project next year.
“St. Francis has the only Level III NICU in this region and we’ve had it for 44 years and we are ready to be able to take it to the next level,” says Aimee Kane, President of the St. Francis Medical Center Foundation. “With these funds, it will give us the opportunity to really focus on patient experience, the family experience, and really have a functional space as time and technology changes.”
