The Mohawk Valley Health System Foundation has announced that its 24th annual $100,000 Miracle Drawing, which benefits the local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital at MVHS, will not take place this year due to COVID-19.
In the past, tickets could be purchased for $100 with a $100,000 cash prize.
The drawing was canceled this year due to the inability of the MVHS Foundation to safely sell tickets at its usual in-person locations. MVHS was also unable to hold the drawing online due to New York State Gaming restrictions.
The money raised each year helps MVHS provide services for women and children with little or no insurance. Funds also support programs and training initiatives for staff, as well as fund specialized care for the Level II special care nursery, located at the St. Luke’s Campus.
Each year, this drawing raises $320,000 for babies and children at MVHS and is crucial to providing the best possible treatment patients.
Those wishing to continue to give to CMN at MVHS can visit mvhealthsystem.org/cmn to make a monetary donation. For every $100 donated by an individual, a Teddy bear will be donated to a child at the hospital in their honor.
All donations to CMN Hospitals at MVHS stay in the community.
