$1 Million Prize Awarded in Health & Wealth Raffle

The Health & Wealth Raffle, benefiting Barrow & St. Joseph’s, awarded a total of $1,360,000 in Grand Prizes to three lucky Arizonans. Sedona resident Dawn Lay won $1 million on Monday, April 30, at a grand prize unveiling at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Phoenix.

“My boss told me that astrologically, something life-changing was coming for me—and obviously she knew—here it is, winning $1 million,” said Dawn Lay, Sedona resident. “The first thing I’m going to do is travel around the world, I’ve already scheduled a six-week trip to Europe for the summer and I had no idea how I was going to pay for it, it was all being charged to a credit card. Now I can stay at a bed and breakfast, instead of youth hostels, and enjoy the amazing food Europe offers, not the granola bars I was planning on bringing with me to save on costs.”

In addition to the Grand Prize winners, more than 2,000 prizes were awarded in this spring’s Raffle. Funds raised help support research, education and patient care at Barrow Neurological Institute and St. Joseph’s Hospital. Over the past 10 years, the Raffle has contributed more than $50 million to the amazing work done at Barrow and St. Joseph’s.
One of Arizona’s largest fundraisers, the Raffle is a unique gaming fundraiser that provides a fun way for Arizona residents to support Barrow & St. Joseph’s while getting a chance to win spectacular prizes. Since the Raffle began in 2003, more than 124,000 prizes have been awarded to Raffle participants including 27 homes, 433 trips, 467 vehicles and more than $15 million cash.
