BIRHC to Raffle Truck

In response to popular demand, the Beaver Island Rural Health Center will raffle a Chevy S-10 pickup truck, currently on display next to the clinic. It has the following features: Classy pewter color, extended cab, 6 cylinder engine, 4X4 drive, aluminum wheels, cruise control, CD player and radio, and split seats. A maximum of 500 tickets will be sold beginning in June, with the drawing to be held on Labor Day. Tickets cost $100. The winner can take delivery in the first week of November or opt for a check for $15,000 cash in the first week of September.

The BIRHC Board is very grateful for the help of Board member Pete LoDico who negotiated the truck’s purchase, traveled to the mainland to pick it up, and donated $2,200 worth of credits on his GM card. Special thanks as well go to Ken and Loretta Slater who authorized the purchase through Ken's GM discount. In addition, a beautiful glass bead charm bracelet donated by Nancy Peterson will be awarded as a door prize. Raffle proceeds will be crucial to filling the gap in the BIRHC budget resulting from the loss of its operating grant from the State of Michigan.
