Calvary Hospital in the Bronx announced that they have officially launched their 21st consecutive Snow Showers of Dollars campaign. Since 1988, when Sister Mary Sean Reagan first implemented this unique program, Snow Showers has raised more than half a million dollars to date for the Hospital’s diverse range of inpatient and outpatient services.
An employee committee representing Calvary’s major departments has been instrumental to the campaign’s success for 20 years. Although it gets much support among Calvary’s 950 employees, Snow Showers is open to the public. The Hospital’s goal for 2008 is to raise $40,000.
To support Calvary, one may purchase chances for a $10 donation; there is no limit to how many one may purchase.
From December 1 through December 31, each chance allows one to have up to 75 opportunities to win a share of $10,000 in prizes. All winning tickets will be placed back in the entry box and will be eligible for all drawings during the month. The Grand Prize of $1,000 will be drawn on December 17.
To Participate, one may pick up entry forms at the Calvary Fund offices, 1740 Eastchester Road, (10461). Forms are also available by mail by calling 718-518-2077. Completed forms must be submitted in person or by mail with a $10 donation, (preferably by check) for each entry form. Checks should be made payable to Calvary Fund, Inc.,
To maximize one’s possibility of wining prizes, Calvary recommends that entry forms be submitted by November 30. However, forms will be accepted well into December.
