Cranbrook, BC… Save on Foods and Overwaitea stores throughout the East Kootenay came together on September 7th at East Kootenay Regional Hospital to help EKFH jump start their MRI: An Image of Health Campaign to raise $650,000. The event was a great start to the campaign with many coming out purchasing a raffle ticket and receiving a free lunch, raising $900 in only a few hours.

Save on Foods and Overwaitea have generously donated 1.6 million More Rewards points to the EKFH MRI: An Image of Health Campaign. EKFH, Save on Foods and Overwaitea will be hosting a raffle over the next six months where customers will have the chance to win 1 million More Rewards points and be entered into individual store prizes of 100,000 points.

Tickets can be purchased at all Save on Foods and Overwaitea stores and EKFH office, $5 for 1, 3 for $12. All proceeds go towards a new permanent MRI at East Kootenay Regional Hospital. Winners will be announced March 1st for the individual store prizes and March 7th for the grand prize.

Ryan Nesbitt, Store Manager of Overwaitea Foods in Sparwood, “We are thrilled to be a part of the EKFH campaign to bring a permanent MRI to our region by encouraging our customers to support a great cause through our draw for one million More Rewards points. It’s a win-win: customers support a much-needed piece of medical equipment in our community and have a chance to win a million More Rewards points – which can be redeemed for a 60-inch ultra-HD TV, an Apple MacBook, more than $4,000 in More Rewards Travel, and much, much more! With a million More Rewards points, the possibilities are endless – and with a permanent MRI, our neighbours can receive the care they need closer to home.”
