Between now and July 31, St. Luke’s Health System is raffling off a 2014 Toyota Corolla to help raise money to improve cancer care in the Fruitland area. The Toyota valued at nearly $18,000 was donated by Steve’s Hometown Toyota in Ontario, Ore. Only 2,000 tickets at $25 each are being offered.
There is a little less than a month left to purchase a ticket to win a new Toyota Corolla, which was graciously donated by Steve’s Hometown Toyota in Ontario, Ore. Proceeds from the raffle will go toward expanding cancer care programs in the Fruitland area. Only 2,000 tickets at $25 each will be sold. The winner will be drawn July 31 at the grand opening of the new Fruitland Emergency Department.
The 2014 Toyota Corolla is loaded with great features and gets great gas mileage.
St. Luke's Health System opened the new Fruitland Medical Plaza on May 1. The 80,000 square-foot facility is phase one of a two-phase, $55 million project that will transform the delivery of health care for patients in eastern Oregon and the western Treasure Valley.
Phase one of the Fruitland Medical plaza will bring the community an urgent care, a walk-in patient clinic, laboratory services, diagnostic and imaging services, and physician offices. On August 1, 2014 a full-service, 24-hour emergency department will open. The department will be staffed by Emergency Medicine of Idaho, the same emergency physician group that currently provides care at St. Luke’s emergency departments in Boise, Meridian and Nampa.
Funds raised from the car raffle will go toward phase two of the project. Phase two would primarily allow for the relocation of the existing Fruitland clinic of St. Luke’s Mountain States Tumor Institute (MSTI), and other outpatient services. In addition, plans are in place to build a respite house adjacent to the Fruitland Medical Plaza that would provide overnight housing for patients undergoing treatment.
Dr. Sarah Bolender, a radiation oncologist at St. Luke's MSTI in Fruitland, buys the first of 2,000 raffle tickets for a new Toyota Corolla that will be sold to raise money to expand cancer care in Fruitland.
The Corolla being raffled has features that include: front bucket seats, tilt and telescoping steering wheel, power door mirrors, and 1-touch window functionality. It features a standard transmission, front-wheel drive, and a 1.8 liter 4 cylinder engine. The Corolla gets an estimate 28 mpg in the city and 37 mpg on the highway. The care is valued at nearly $18,000.
Only 2,000 tickets at $25 each will be available. You must be 18 or older to purchase a ticket.
