Parissa Mortazavi took home $2,155.50 as the October 5 winner of the Foundation’s 50/50 staff lottery.
Parissa has worked at Mackenzie Health for 25 years as a Clinical Pharmacist and is proud to see that pharmacists have become a vital part of multidisciplinary teams taking care of patients throughout the hospital. Parissa’s vision for Mackenzie Health is to one day have the highest patient satisfaction rate in Canada.
Parissa says, “I had a trip planned to London, England wo days after I found out about my big win! This was the best timing. I spent most of [my winnings] there and truly enjoyed my trip.”
Many Mackenzie Health employees are supporting the Foundation by joining the bi-weekly Pay Day Payout 50/50 Staff Lottery, which launched last May to strengthen Mackenzie Health’s culture of generosity and help raise awareness of the Foundation’s fundraising efforts.
Here’s how it works:
Every payday during the lottery period from May 4 to Nov. 2, a total of 3,900 tickets are available and eligible Mackenzie Health employees have a chance to win a maximum jackpot of $5,850 (the actual prize amount varies with participation).
Half the proceeds go to the winner, while the other half will help purchase much needed state-of-the-art equipment and technology for Mackenzie Health.
As of August, eight lucky employees have been awarded $12,972.
You could be the next lucky winner and take home more than $1,500 in our upcoming draws. But you have to have a ticket to win.
Thank you to everyone who has signed up…and good luck
