Raffle tickets to benefit heart care

In addition to offering 40 incredible prizes of $100,000, car leases, cruises and trips to exotic locales, the annual Straight from the Heart Raffle and Gala have raised more than $2 million for cardiovascular care in our community since 2004. 

Proceeds have benefited cardiovascular services, technology and community outreach programs at Fairview, Lakewood and Lutheran Hospitals, with initiatives including:  

  • Donation of 30 AEDS to help protect 48 million annual visitors to the Cleveland Metroparks
  • A cardiovascular wellness program to provide education on decreasing heart disease risk factors
  • A pulmonary rehabilitation program to help patients reduce symptoms and improve their quality of life
  • A program to prevent hospital readmissions for heart failure patients
  • An educational video for pre-surgery cardiac patients 

With such a great cause and so many incredible prizes, why not purchase a raffle ticket at $100 each or three for $200? The raffle drawings take place at the Straight from the Heart red-tie gala on Feb. 15. Winners need not be present to win.
