The odds are 1 in 9550 (total tickets for sale) to win a prize. Actual odds depend on number of tickets sold.

The prize will be available for pick up or mailed once the winner’s identity and mailing address has been verified. Winners consent to release of their names by licensee.

The winner will be published on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/fsjhospitalfoundation.
