Lowell General Sun Santa Raffle Sets New Record

2013 Sun Santa DonationForty-two lavish gift baskets were created and donated by different hospital departments from both Lowell General Hospital's Main Varnum Avenue Campus and the Saints campus. They were raffled off on Wednesday, December 18th in the hospital's Clark Auditorium before a spirited crowd of 200 onlookers.

The sale of raffle tickets to staff, patients and the public yielded more than $55,00, an amount which the hospital matched to produce a total contribution of $110,016.

It was the most successful Lowell General Sun Santa raffle yet, surpassing last year's then-record total of $109,400.

"This event's very important because it brings in a substantial amount of funds to Sun Santa," said Ed Madden, coordinator of the Sun Santa Fund, which provides needy families with vouchers for toys, clothing and holiday meals in the Christmas season. "It allows us to get benefits for people and families in 13 different communities in the Greater Lowell area."

In the past, over 1,600 families, including 3,500 children, received vouchers for food, clothing and toys in the Sun Santa program which is administered by Community Teamwork International and The Salvation Army.

Here is the list of the Lowell General Hospital 2013 Sun Santa Raffle Basket Winners.
