Launching Wednesday, March 6, the Health & Wealth Raffle, benefiting Barrow Neurological Institute & St. Joseph’s Hospital, is back this spring with a new look, more prize drawings, and new, once-in-a-lifetime experience packages.

“For the Raffle’s 10th anniversary, we’ve refreshed the Raffle, and it’s better for the players, hospital and our patients who ultimately benefit from our success,” said Patty White, President and CEO of St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center. “This spring, we are excited to introduce once-in-a-lifetime prize packages to participants in addition to our mainstay amazing cars, trips and $1 million grand prize.”

Once-in-a-lifetime experiences include:

· Build-your-own European dream vacation

· Custom jewelry design experience with jeweler Oliver Smith

· Meet country music star Dierks Bentley and enjoy a VIP Country Concert Package plus $10,000 cash

One of Arizona’s largest fundraisers, the Raffle is a unique gaming fundraiser that provides a fun way for anyone living in, or visiting, Arizona to support Barrow and St. Joseph’s while getting a chance to win spectacular prizes. To date,the Raffle has raised more than $50 million for Barrow and St. Joseph’s.

Spring 2011 Raffle winner Lloyd Tindell knows the Raffle is fun and supports the amazing work of Barrow and St. Joseph’s. In 1984, he lost his wife to a brain aneurysm. Twenty years later, he feared the worst when his second wife was diagnosed with the same condition. Because of medical advancements at Barrow, she was able to make a full recovery.

“In Spring 2011, I won a beautiful timepiece from the Health & Wealth Raffle,” said Tindell. “I wear this watch daily, and it's a wonderful reminder to me of Barrow and just how much my life has been impacted by them.”
