NORTH BATTLEFORD — Battlefords Union Hospital (BUH) Foundation’s 2024-25 Monthly Lottery launches Thursday, Feb. 15.

BUH Foundation’s longest-running lottery gives away a total of $50,000 in cash plus a 50/50 jackpot.

There are only 1300 tickets to be sold with 13 draws made every month for a total of $4,000 in prizes each month for 12 months. The top prize is $1,000, second prize $600, third prize $400 and 10 additional prizes of $200 each. The 50/50 jackpot has grown every year and last year gave away $16,235.

Proceeds will purchase a new bedside ultrasound machine for the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at BUH. This device is a valuable tool for physicians working in critical care environments to obtain immediate clinical information, improve patient safety, increase efficiency and decrease complications, according to BUH Foundation.

It provides diagnosis capability at the bedside and can perform ultrasound-guided procedures. The machine is a new piece of equipment for the ICU and has a projected cost of $64,756.

Lottery tickets remain at $110 each for the year with 50/50 enhancements of $10 each after the purchase of a main lottery ticket only.

Tickets are available at the BUH Foundation office or in Gratefully Yours Gift and Food Shop, both located in the Main Lobby of BUH, Battleford Furniture, online at or by calling 306-446-6652.
