The Kamloops Blazers are holding a 50/50 raffle to raise money for the Ronald McDonald Family Room at Royal Inland Hospital.
Half of the proceeds from the raffle will go to the holder of the winning ticket, with the other half going to the cause.
Tickets are being sold through Dec. 31 and can be purchased online at blazersrmh5050.ca.
The Ronald McDonald Family Room, slated to open in 2024, will be situated next to the pediatric and neonatal intensive-care units.
The family room will allow patients and their siblings release some energy in the play area, while parents may rest, prepare hot meals and snacks or enjoy a complimentary cup of coffee.
The space has yet to be designed, but will include sleeping rooms and a range of complimentary amenities.
The family room at Royal Inland Hospital will be the second to open in B.C., with the first located at Surrey Memorial Hospital.
The organization’s expansion to RIH — which serves more than 225,000 people from the Thompson Cariboo Shuswap region — is expected to enhance the hospital’s support of residents in Kamloops and surrounding areas.
