The raffle is held in partnership with Brian and Gail Snook in memory of their son Jeremy who passed away from cancer at age 19. The 3 rd Annual Jeremy Snook Memorial Raffle will bring us that much closer to creating three new palliative care patient suites with adjoining family rooms. They will provide a home-like atmosphere where patients and their loved ones can be comfortable during end of life care. This project is one of the critical projects encompassed in The Gratitude Campaign. Only 500 tickets have been printed and they are available for sale until Friday, August 25 th , 2017 (or until sold out). Tickets are $500 each.
