30th edi­tion of Lo­terie Jevi

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

In the Estrie, about one per­son com­mits sui­cide ev­ery week. For each of those deaths, at least ten peo­ple will be se­ri­ously af­fected and in need of learn­ing how to go on af­ter the loss of a loved one.

“Un­for­tu­nately for many, sui­cide is seen as a so­lu­tion when faced with life’s dif­fi­cul­ties. Now we have the chance to take part in this fight to pre­vent sui­cide. This is not a fight that we battle in vain, but a daily fight that gets re­sults,” com­mented this year’s co-pres­i­dents, Doc­tors Au­drey Verte­feuille and Mathieu Faubert.

The ob­jec­tive of this year’s cam­paign is to sell all 550 raf­fle tick­ets for a gross profit of $82,500. Those who buy raf­fle tick­ets, be­sides con­tribut­ing to a worth­while cause, get the chance to win one of six trips from Club Stan-Buy, one of two Spa East­man packages, a $500 gift cer­tifi­cate for the Car­refour de l’Estrie or a $350 gift cer­tifi­cate for the Cen­tre de vil­le­gia­ture Jou­vence.

Peo­ple in­ter­ested in buy­ing tick­ets ei­ther in­di­vid­u­ally or in groups can call 819 564-7349. The drawing will take place on Wed­nes­day, June 10th.
