The Jeremy Snook Memorial Car Raffle launches in memory
of young Fort McMurray man

Proceeds in support of the Northern Lights Health Foundation

Fort McMurray, Alberta – The Northern Lights Health Foundation is proud to announce the launch of the Jeremy Snook Memorial Car Raffle, supported by Legacy Dodge. Ticket purchasers will have an opportunity to win a 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392, with a retail value of $62,559. All proceeds raised from the Car Raffle will support enhancements to palliative care services in the Northern Lights Regional Health Centre. The Car Raffle is being held in partnership with Brian and Gail Snook in memory of their son Jeremy who passed away at age 19. The Health Foundation is hosting a celebration officially launching the Car Raffle at the Northern Lights Regional Health Centre on Wednesday, June 3 at 1:30 p.m.

Jeremy will always be remembered as an enthusiastic, loving young man. He had many friends and a passion for the outdoors. Diagnosed with terminal brain cancer in late 2013, Jeremy spent his last days surrounded by family and friends, receiving palliative care treatment in the Medicine Unit of the Health Centre.

Following Jeremy’s passing, the community came together to start an in-memorial campaign in support of the Health Foundation. Over 75 people contributed to the campaign, raising over $30,000 to improve health care delivery in Wood Buffalo. Wanting to further their impact on health care in our community, the Snooks are actively raising funds to help expand and renovate palliative care services in the Health Centre. Renovations will include new patient suites with adjoining family rooms which will provide a home-like atmosphere where patients and their loved ones can be comfortable during end of life care.

“The Health Foundation is so pleased to be partnering with Brian and Gail on this initiative. Their passion for making a difference in the name of their son is truly phenomenal,” said Susanne Chaffey, Executive Director of the Health Foundation. “The funds the Snooks are raising, including those raised through this raffle, will play a critical role in enhancing services for terminally ill patients and their loved ones in our community.”

The Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 being raffled comes in ivory tri-coat pearl, with 20x9.5-inch Hyper Black lightweight forged aluminum wheels, is 6-speed manual, has 485 horsepower and 475 torque. Tickets will be available until Tuesday, Aug. 25, 2015 (or until sold out) and are $500 each. Only 300 tickets are printed.

Tickets are available for purchase by calling the Health Foundation at 780-791-6041, in-person at the Health Foundation Office in the Northern Lights Regional Health Centre or online.
